Still Waters

Huge waterspout filmed in Australia

5 posts in this topic

It may have looked like something out of a disaster movie - but the Jeep driver passing through was probably under no illusions to the very real threat posed by this gigantic waterspout.

The amazing natural phenomenon, which is created when tornadoes form above the sea, was spotted earlier today along the shoreline near Batemans Bay, which is 140 miles (225km) south of Sydney.

My husband saw one in Crowmer, not as big as this one though. It was a hot sunny day and all of a sudden the clouds come over and a water spout come from the sea and picked the sea up and took a load of windsurfers with it, there was a massive storm of hailstone, rain and wind. very strange natural occurance for July.

I though I was watching the news footage from the US when I saw this this morning!

I think that's a bit more than just a water spout look at the breadth of it,something like that needs a new name like! Mecha Sprout! O.o

Wow! I didn't know they could be so big and this one seems really close to the shore too.

Is that the usual course for these things? Still..I'm not sure I'd want to be so close to that like that photo of the onlookers shows.
