I saw a triplet of water spouts over Lake Erie when I was a kid! I was fascinated and enthralled by them but my mother insisted, in no uncertain terms, on pulling us kids off the beach immediately.

Some of the videos of tornadoes that people are getting these days are insane. I wonder how many great videos ended up in the tornado and were never found.

Wow. On the bright side, it's more publicity for their charity.
Does anyone know whether vortices are common under those conditions (in the second video)? It's completely new to me. :confused:
