Tyre, Lebanon, Middle East Mediterranean sea..
October 23rd 2008
3:30 PM local time
These pictures were taken by different sources as this amazing monster got closer and closer. IM just amazed how mother nature can be soooooooo beautiful and yet so deadly at the same time. Luckily no one got hurt and no damage was reported as u see all the buildings over there are built of re-inforced concrete. Its the first time anything like that ever happened over there.

here are the pics. enjoy.

Well, duh - Mother nature is a female.:lol

It's called a waterspout by the way. Basically a tornado over the water.

I like the bloke in the picture who decides that sitting there and watching a tornado approach as he fishes is nothing to worry about. I'd be running away and making plans about changing my underwear.

Nice beachfront property. I am glad it is still standing. That thing was huge.

Spout, not spot. Yep, it's just a tornado over the water.

I thought the guy fishing and watching was a bit funny too, but as Ash noted, nothing like that had ever happened so he probably had no idea what it was or how much trouble he could have been in. I remember many years ago I was working in Cleveland when a storm rolled through and there were five of these out on Lake Erie at one time. Pretty impressive sight.:scared

Cyclones are in the Pacific, hurricanes in the Atlantic. Typhoons must be in the Indian Ocean? :confused Anyhow, those are all the same things with different names, a tornado is another critter altogether.
