This is something you don't see every day. Just wish the video was longer.

Seems like the water is sucked up in a sort of vortex. Just a guess..

Wow, I have heard of this before but rare I think.

Not all that rare. I've seen a number of them. Once I saw five at the same time (now that is rare).

It looks like that pair formed under a squall line, a typical situation for waterspout formation.

I saw close to a dozen once when running "FastBoat" tours in Tobermory, Ontario. They formed on the front edge of a squall line. A lake freighter I was working on got hit by one once also. But being 740' long and all steel we suffered no damage, only lost some heaving lines.

They are very cool but dangerous to small craft.

Nice videos to look at gem man.

Waterspouts are very, very interesting.

I keep wondering if some how waterspouts are able to centrifuge out the salt in salt water when waterspouts take the salty ocean waters up into the clouds to later rain back down onto the earth without any salt in the rain.

If there was salt in the rain, then plants would die from the salty water, but there doesn't seem to be salty water coming back down in the rain that was taken up from the oceans.
