    Re: Waterspouts.

     From what I've read over the last few days, and personal
    experience I have come to the conclusion that there are
    at least 2 different types of waterspouts.
    One is the true tornado on water - tight, black, and
    connected to the type of cloud above, and associated
    with the same weather one would see with a tornado on land.
    The other is more like a "dust devil" on land... a much
    lighter weight phenomina, much more mischevious than
    dangerous.... although able to stir things up, not
    the heavy mover and destroyer that a true tornado is.
    The Weather Channel (on cable television) and some
    recent movies here in USA have managed to catch the
    true force of large tornados... People who live in
    central USA have tremendous respect for these
    storms.... and would never think of driving any
    sort of vehicle into one.... because it would be
    utterly destroyed.
