Waterspout Comes Close to Louisiana Fishermen's Boat

A group fishing off Grand Isle, Louisiana, found themselves caught up in severe weather in June 17.

Footage posted to YouTube by local fisherman Tommy Vidrine shows wind beginning to whip up water around them, before it passes over their boat. Vidrine surveys the waterspout as it moves away from them, saying, “We were in the middle of that!”

Vidrine told Storyful he captured the dramatic footage in the Caminada Pass area. No one was injured, he said. Other social media users shared videos and photos of the waterspout as it appeared close to the shore. Credit: Tommy Vidrine via Storyful
