Another shot of the water spout.

Reader Joe Attard took this picture of a water spout which formed over the Gozo Channel and moved over Mellieha and surrounding areas at 10.30 this morning. (15/09/10)

Frederick is my cousin in Malta. He suggested that there was another waterspout/tornado earlier before this one. I guess this may be the one. That is a short distance away from the position that Frederick got this waterspout.

He will comment shortly.

Hi Everybody !!  I am new to this forum.

Thanks to Jimmy I am chasing weather since early 90's,
It was first time to see a waterspout live in front of me. In Malta are not that common and tornadoes are very rare.
my eyes still pointing to the sky to see another one even in fine weather  :)


bye for now, hope you enjoy the pictures

Frederick (Jimmy's cousin)
