Video: Waterspouts interrupt Florida coast lobster diving trip

Five large waterspouts interrupted a lobster diving trip on Wednesday off the coast of Florida. The dramatic footage was filmed by dive captain Kevin Johnsen six miles (9.6 kilometres) north of Marathon and shows the large columnar vortexes dropping down to the sea. Johnsen was joined on the trip by his dog Boede and another passenger, Aaron Osters. At one point they decided to go into one of the waterspouts, causing torrents of water to hit the camera lens. Adam Futterman, a spokesman from the US National Weather Service (NWS), said they "don't endorse chasing waterspouts". He said the responsible course of action would have been to call the weather service and report the waterspout. Waterspouts are very common in the Gulf waters off the Florida coastline. There were no specific reports of water spouts in the area on 25 September, however the AP checked with the National Weather Service, who confirmed that a marine warning for high winds was issued a few days earlier. The NWS also confirmed that the video appeared to show waterspouts. A waterspout looks like a tornado, with a whirling, funnel-shaped cloud suspended beneath a low-lying cloud, dropping to a body of water. They are usually weaker than land tornados and are caused by unstable weather conditions.RT LIVE to RT! us on Facebook us on Twitter us on Instagram us on Google+ (Russia Today) is a global news network broadcasting from Moscow and Washington studios.
