Cargo Ship Crew Film Three Waterspouts Off Finland Coast

Members of a cargo ship crew took their cameras out on July 9 when three swirling waterspouts hit the sea at the same time, just off Isokari Island in Finland.

The captain of the boat, Jeffrey Ripson, told Storyful that the vessel Mirva VG was passing Isokari on its way to Uusikaupunki when they witnessed the unusual phenomenon.

Local media, quoting Ville Siiskonen from the Finnish Meteorological Institute, wrote that it was rare to see so many waterspouts in such close proximity. Credit: Jeffrey Ripson via Storyful
