Massive waterspouts have been spotted at a Geraldton beach.
One captured on camera this morning lasted about ten minutes.
The rare formations gave some locals a fright but didn’t do any damage.
It was a different case in Scarborough in 2017 when a wild waterspout stopped traffic, demolished a wall and even spun a car as it crossed the coast.
The waterspout hit land just before noon on July 23, swirling across West Coast Highway in front of bewildered motorists.
Just last year fisherman in Russia’s Krasnodar region captured stunning vision of two waterspouts in the Black Sea.
In the video filmed from their vessel, the two men can be heard describing their shock at witnessing the whirling phenomenon.
“A whirlwind, a twister, 500 meters from us. It’s huge,” Pavel Chernyavsky said as he filmed the first tower of water moving towards them.
Waterspouts, which are essentially tornadoes over water, are naturally occurring spinning columns of water.
They’re usually accompanied by heavy storms and strong winds.
