Ummm.... that's pretty common down here on the gulf. Not a big news thing at all. You really see them if you work at any of the plants around here on the water in Mississippi nearly every time it rains fairly decently. So, why is it news?

I lived in Panama City in the early 90's. The sea turtles had just hatched at shell island, a huge waterspout was tossing them up on front beach road. We had to 'shew' them back toward the beach (they were confused). You could not touch them because the human smell would attract predators once they were back in the water.

Water spouts were very common.

How very unusual - subject matter which looks better if you hold the phone upright.

That was *ALMOST* a good case for shooting a video vertically. If only he had panned up to get the waterspout completely in the shot. and not wasted half the screen filming the harbor.

Jesus Christ, first I get some full screen unwanted MLB commercial (thankfully without sound).

I stop that shiat, and can't find the video, I assume the video can't be seen without the MLB shiat.

Then three slides in is an ad for Google Play.

Then comes down the Scorecard research survey.

Including the harbor in the shot is what gives it scale and context. This video would be 3.7 times lousier without it included in the shot.

Could that site have beaten us up any worse for a couple of low-res pictures?
