  Comments and Quotes  

We need people who can swim in the water. - John McCain - 257

A waterspout is a nonsupercell tornado that occurs over warm water. Waterspouts usually occur in the summer when parts of the ocean are hot. The hot air above the ocean will rise into the cooler air which forms a cloud. The hot air will spin so fast that if will form a funnel extending from the cloud. If this funnel touches the surface of the water, a waterspout is created. They are most common in the Florida Key and the southeast Florida Coast during the rainy season. However, waterspouts can occur in the western United States with late winter storms. Because a waterspout is a weak tornado, the most harm that is can cause is from flying debris. - Michelle Rooks - 234
