A weather phenomenon

Reports reaching this blog speaks to a phenomenon that was witnessed by Choiseulians earlier this week. This it is reported sent chills through the spine of the onlookers. It is the first time that such a spectacle has been seen in the Choiseul waters and this worried the onlookers greatly..
It had all the features of a tornado, actually it was a water tornado, a weaker version of the land based one. It is most often called a water spout which is a funnel-shaped column of water between sea and cloud, formed when a whirlwind draws up a whirling mass of water.
This should make quite an interesting lesson for the schools kids.
