Default Water spout

Did anyone else see the water spout this morning? It last about half an hour and was quite strong.

It was quite a sight. It formed then dissipated and then reformed. If it had come onshore it would have created havoc

Strange weather we are having this last few days.

Oh sorry, you mean you want this info LOL!!!! :-

Tornadic waterspouts are tornadoes that form over water, or move from land to water. They have the same characteristics as a land tornado. They are associated with severe thunderstorms, and are often accompanied by high winds and seas, large hail, and frequent dangerous lightning.

I will see if I can get the video, a friend of mine was diving today and it happened fairly near his dive boat. Quite spectacular when I viewed it this evening.
Hope it's all back to normal from tomorrow.
