A waterspout is a tornado-like column or funnel of violently rotating air that usually forms over the surface of the sea. It is a non-supercell tornado over water having a five-part life cycle - formation of a dark spot on the water surface, spiral pattern on the water surface, formation of a spray ring, development of the visible condensation funnel, and ultimately, decay.

Waterspouts form mostly in tropical and subtropical areas. But regions, including Europe, Middle-East, Australia, New Zealand and Antarctica also report these votives on rare occasions.

Meanwhile, in another similar incident, a large-funnel cloud formation stunned and concerned guests at Walt Disney World Florida earlier this week after it appeared in the dark skies about the theme park. A video showed the ominous cloud over Epcot. The US National Weather Service later informed that it was a “funnel cloud”. 

The incident did not cause any damage to the theme parks or nearby resorts, but it did create a commotion.
