Waterspouts, like hurricanes, tornadoes, tsunamis and Godzilla, are all God's way of saying, "Hey, remember me? You live in MY Sim City, punks!" Just kidding, they're natural phenomena and don't let anybody tell you otherwise (unless that person is me after changing my mind). This is a shot of the giant waterspout that popped up over Tampa yesterday.
A waterspout is a weather phenomenon that happens when a combo of air and mist form a potentially dangerous vortex. This particular one actually came ashore which is unusual as they usually stay over water. No one was injured but it did cause a lot of property damage.
When reached for comment, one fish that got caught in the waterspout had this to say, "I'M FLYING, JACK!" What? You think fish haven't seen 'Titanic' -- are you kidding me? They love that movie because they consider it payback for all of their friends that we eat.
Hit the jump for a local news report about the spout.
Thanks to ChaosLex, who loves chaos so much he may have actually CAUSED that waterspout.
