Waterspout sighting from Route 15

WATERSPOUT: A whirling column of air and mist above the sea, called a waterspout, is seen from Route 15 on the horizon along the eastern side of the island around 3:45 p.m. Friday. Guam-based meteorologist Brandon Aydlett said the force of waterspouts normally ranges from no more than 60 to 75 mph. A few years ago, however, a waterspout landed on Kosrae and caused some damage, he said. Though it seems there are more sightings of water spouts on Guam, Aydlett said, that might not be the case. He said these days, more people are aware of what waterspouts are – and more have access to cameras on their phones to prove what they saw. Dontana Keraskes/The Guam Daily Post
