A waterspout is a violently rotating tornado-shaped column or funnel of air that usually forms on the surface of the sea. It is a non-supercell tornado over water having a cycle five-part life – formation of a dark spot on the water surface, spiral pattern on the water surface, formation of a spray ring, development of the visible condensation funnel, and finally , rot.
Waterspouts mainly form in tropical and subtropical areas. But regions including Europe, the Middle East, Australia, New Zealand and Antarctica also report these votives on rare occasions.
