Weekend waterspout caught on film near Chesapeake Bay Bridge [VIDEO]


ANNAPOLIS, MD—A wild weather phenomenon was caught on video in Maryland over the weekend.

At just before 3 p.m. on Saturday, Tessa Gunnell captured amazing footage of a waterspout while crossing the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.

In the video, the waterspout can be seen spinning and kicking up spray, and at one point there almost appears to be a second vortex.

Tornadic waterspouts are tornadoes that form over water, or move from land to water, according to NOAA. They have the same characteristics as a land tornado.

The amazing footage can be viewed below, via meteorologist Justin Berk’s YouTube channel
