BALDWIN COUNTY, Ala. (WKRG) — WKRG News 5 viewers caught a waterspout on camera Wednesday afternoon in Baldwin County.
Paula Callahan sent in pictures. WKRG learned of a possible waterspout around 1:15 pm.
Waterspouts can occur when warm air rises and starts rotating on a vertical axis. In this case, they form very similar to tornadoes, just over water.
Waterspouts can easily come on land from the water and should be taken seriously.
