Waterspout. Coloured historical artwork of a waterspout threatening a ship. A waterspout is a tornado over water instead of land. It 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 by Camille Flammarion, in 1873.
