Earlier this week, tourists spotted not just one, but three waterspouts forming simultaneously on the surface of the lake.
“Water tornados,” as some call them, are formed by a convection current of warm and cold air over a body of water.

These were spotted near a beach in the Netherlands.
I would not want to be out waterskiing during this one in Florida.
Have you ever been on the water during one of these?
