According to the US National Ocean Service (NOAA), the “fairweather waterspout” shape is not associated with storms and differs from the “tornade waterspout” in that it forms at the surface and rises. .
“Weather waterspouts form in light wind conditions, so they usually move very little.”
Also, according to the information, a waterspout, despite the name, is not filled with rotating water, but with strong winds, although it requires a relatively high water temperature and significant humidity to form.
“When a waterspout moves on land, the National Weather Service issues a tornado alert because some of them can cause significant damage and injury to people.” Check log:
