According to local media, no one was injured and the area was minimally damaged.

A waterspout is not as dangerous as a tornado and often does much less damage.

Tornadic waterspouts are tornadoes over water rather than land that form when winds from different directions converge and can only go up.

They are associated with severe thunderstorms and are often accompanied by high winds and waves, large hail and frequent lightning, according to the National Ocean Service.

Fair-weather waterspouts, on the other hand, usually form along the dark base of developing cumulus or single fluffy clouds and are not generally associated with storms.

Despite the name, waterspouts are not actually filled with water but are made of wind and fog.

According to National Geographic experts, they can reach a diameter of up to 100 meters and last up to an hour.
