Watch This Spectacular Water Spout Lash The Australian Coastline

Water spouts off the coast of Australia are not new. But this one is particularly striking and huge. It was filmed this Sunday at Batemans Bay, in New South Wales.

Water spouts happen when a funnel cloud touches the sea surface and they don’t last long, usually dissolving in the same way they started. Whatever. I would have been running the hell out of there the moment it started. [Gracias Oscar!]
