This is, of course, a great excuse to dig up the big dog of waterspout pictures, from our post "Dear Kansas, I'll See ya and Raise: Five Tornados at one time off Novorossiysk, Russia":
Okay, waterspouts. if you're going to get all technical on me.
I'm not sure about RT, their stories sometimes have a bit of a National Enquirer feel to them but I was told by an ex-pat that this actually happened back in August. Number five is curling in from the top left.
From Russia Today:
No less then five tornadoes have sprung up just a kilometer out at sea from the port town of Novorossiysk....
