Check out this video of a massive waterspout that was caught on video.

Waterspouts are basically tornados over water and if they come in contact with a boat, or anything else on the water they can cause lots of damage just like tornados do on land.

If you happen to be on the water when a waterspout forms, the National Weather Service does have some safety guidelines you should follow.

  • Listen for special marine warnings about waterspout sightings that are broadcast on NOAA Weather Radio.
  • Watch the sky for certain types of clouds. In the summer, with light winds, look for a possible waterspout underneath a line of cumulus clouds with dark, flat bases. Any time of the year, a thunderstorm or line of thunderstorms can produce very intense waterspouts.
  • If a waterspout is sighted, immediately head at a 90-degree angle from the apparent motion of the waterspout.
  • Never try to navigate through a waterspout. Although waterspouts are usually weaker than tornadoes, they can still produce significant damage to you and your boat.
