Crew and passengers on a lobster-diving trip off the coast of Florida got more than they bargained for on Wednesday when they saw five large waterspouts dropping down into the sea.
Waterspouts are usually weaker than land tornadoes and are caused by the sort of unstable weather conditions common in the area at this time of year.
