Port Aransas- With the light wind speed and very moist tropical airmass this Sunday morning, some waterspouts formed over the Gulf of Mexico near Port Aransas.
A waterspout is a column of rotating, cloud-filled wind. A waterspout descends from a cumulus cloud to water.
Waterspouts are similar to tornados but are usually smaller and less intense.
