Check out the waterspout in Australia!

A huge waterspout has been recorded off the coast of Batemans Bay in the Australian state of New South Wales.

They're formed when rapidly rotating winds move over water.

The waterspout does not suck up water to great heights - the main visible cloud is formed by condensation of water vapour.

It did not cause any damage, but bad weather in the region is expected to become more severe.
