Waterspout threatening a ship, historical artwork. Waterspouts form where a tornado touches down on water, instead of land. A tornado is a rapidly rotating funnel of air that can form below certain types of storm clouds. High wind speeds within the rotating funnel can cause immense destruction. Waterspouts are most common over subtropical and tropical waters. Engraving from The Atmosphere (1873) by Camille Flammarion.
