Wild Watersprouts Pictures

Here are photos of waterspouts around the world during the 21st century.

A waterspout is a tornado or twister over water instead of over the land.

Waterspout can cause disaster; if a waterspout hits a ship, it could crush them into pieces.

If a waterspout moves onshore, the National Weather Service issues a tornado warning, as some of them can cause significant damage and injuries to people.

A swarm of tornadoes tore through several counties in southern Mississippi and Alabama on Sunday damaging lots of buildings, vehicles and trees.

Mississippi Emergency Management Agency spokesman Greg Flynn said it appears a single tornado caused the damage in Forrest, Marion and Lamar counties.

Hundreds of homes are damaged in Forrest County.

In Hattiesburg, the twister moved along one of the city’s main streets and damaged buildings at the governor’s alma mater, the University of Southern Mississippi.

Forrest County Sheriff Billy McGee says 10 or 15 people were injured by the tornado that slammed Hattiesburg and other parts of the county.

This is a disaster.
