Triple threat: Watch as 3 waterspouts swirl off the Alabama coast
MOBILE, Ala. - It’s like a scene from the movie "Twister" – but only over water.Beachgoers in Alabama watched as not one, not two but three waterspouts danced on Mobile Bay Monday morning.More waterspouts were spotted along the coast, prompting the National Weather Service in Mobile to issue a Special Marine Warning for South Mobile Bay, North Mobile Bay and Mississippi Sound.While there was no threat to land, the fair-weather waterspouts are common this time of year through early fall along the Gulf Coast.WHAT IS A WATERSPOUTThese types of waterspouts usually form during relatively calm weather and are not associated with thunderstorms.A screengrab from a video shows three waterspouts near Mobile Bay, Alabama, on June 20, 2022.
