Caption: Ship and waterspout, 19th-century artwork. Waterspouts are the equivalent over water to tornadoes on land. A tornado is a rapidly rotating funnel of air that can form below certain types of storm clouds. Waterspouts are generally weaker than tornadoes, but strong ones capable of causing death and destruction are possible. This scene, located in the North Sea, shows a steam-powered ship. Waterspouts are more common over tropical waters. Artwork from the 13th volume (first period of 1894) of the French popular science weekly 'La Science Illustree'.
