I've seen plenty of 'dust devils' in Africa, and a few in the South of this country and on the plains, but I've never seen an actual tornado 'in the flesh', so to speak. (Quite frankly, I'll be perfectly happy to perpetuate that record until I die!) By the same token, I've never seen a waterspout.
This video clip was taken near Sydney, Australia by a news helicopter. It shows multiple waterspouts approaching the city, which apparently caused some damage when they came ashore. I don't know why waterspouts appear so much longer and thinner than most of the tornadoes I see in news reports, but they're strangely pretty . . . albeit deadly!
