MOBILE, Ala. -

Just after 2:00 Wednesday afternoon, a waterspout was spotted over Mobile bay.

Hundreds of people up and down the western shore of Mobile bay sent News 5 pictures and videos of the large spout.

WKRG Chief meteorologist Alan Sealls says waterspouts are a weaker cousin to tornados, but can get up to 100 mph.
