Waterspouts August 16, 2008
On the morning of Sunday August 17...Captain James Ezell took pictures of a water spout just off of Carolina Beach. In this picture...the circulation extends all the way down to the water. The debris/water cloud is barley visible if you look carefully.
In this picture the circulation remains intact. However...an outflow or surge is elongating the rotation.
The circulation is further elongated in this final picture...but still extends to the surface. The debris/water cloud can be seen if you look carefully.
