Stunning Photo of Twin Waterspouts Over Lake Michigan

They were sighted a couple of miles off shore Thursday afternoon

People along the Lake Michigan shoreline near Kenosha and Pleasant Prairie, Wis., were treated to a stunning sight Thursday afternoon when twin waterspouts formed off the coast.

Gulnaz Saiyed uploaded this incredible photo to Twitter, writing, "Another shot from the water spout in Pleasant Prairie, WI. We saw about 5 tunnels total. #aykm."

Sgt. Bill Beth of the Kenosha County sheriff's office told the Associated Press that the two water spouts merged into one large one, then split. Experts say water spouts can occur in the area between August and October. No injuries were reported.

Watch the video below to see the water spout after the two spouts merged.

Ahem, that's not a waterspout. That's this administration and the NSA pissing on us.

Looks like something from the ancient Greek legends. Never get anything like that in Pacific coast. Saw small one in Rockaways but it went back inside w/o ******* anything.This one is simply HUGE. What if a ship wouldve been under that thing? Not even an aircraft carrier wouldve survived. Maybe these are responsible for all those mysterious missing ships and planes.

Was hit with one on Gulf Coast in 60's.....the water weight to the wind makes these storms the most fierce of all the tornado's. It hit Biloxi and in a brief moment took out 3 blocks, one of which was a lumber yard which it scattered across the town for miles.....

That's because Al Gore calls Michigan home. It was there that he filmed "An Inconvenient Trough" I meant truth lol.

When they are in Lake Michigan, they are a big deal. When they are in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Southern California, nobody mentions them.

Waterspouts are actually more common on the Great Lakes than they are on the Pacific coastline, but thanks for checking in.
