Waterspout on Black Sea off Russia captivates beachgoers

Beachgoers have been captivated by a spectacular waterspout over the Black Sea off the coast of Russia.

Several witnesses captured the rare phenomenon on video as it swirled around near the resort town of Arkhipo-Osipovka.America’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration describes a waterspout as a whirling column of air and water mist.

Despite the relative infrequency of waterspouts, fishermen in Russia’s Krasnodar region came across another one on the Black Sea last week.
