Waterspout forms in Australia

Posted: Updated:

A massive waterspout formed in New South Wales, Australia on Sunday.

The rare sight was captured on video.

A water spout is like a tornado but less harmful, passing over a body of water, with warm temperature in the lower atmosphere mixed with high humidity.

Water spouts generally break up when they hit land.
