An immense and ominous-looking waterspout was videotaped Sunday evening and posted to Youtube by a user named Otis5220. The video was shared on Twitter by U.S. Tornadoes.
The waterspout was spawned from storms related to tropical storm Debby, whose squalls were affecting the coasts of the Florida Panhandle and west-central Florida.
As of Sunday evening, a tropical storm warning remained in effect for the Mississippi-Alabama border area east to the Suwannee River in Georgia and north Florida.
Debby had essentially stalled and it remains unclear where the storm, which as of 10 p.m. local time boasted maximum sustained winds of 60 mph, might come ashore. Extensive flooding is expected in southern Georgia and northern Florida.
