      Hi A_lad,
      This is near where I live. When this was recorded, they also had 3 other waterspouts the same morning. (Yesterday) A few weeks ago my husband & son saw another one just off the same coastal area.
      Whilst we do have them occasionally, we don’t have so many, & certainly not in one day! Whilst I am sure there would be several occurrences a year, it is unusual for people to witness several a year, let alone all in one day. It appears to be an increasing event, like so many things.
      My son was actually at the beach & saw this, – he said he had people coming up to him saying they had never seen anything like this, – locals included.
      The Met Bureau has said that the weather system causing the spouts will be in play for the next few days & more spouts may form over this time.
      The last part of the footage shows the storm water runoff over the cliffs near Sydney, – Gale force winds carrying the runoff upwards.

    Amazing video. The 3 waterspouts is awesome, but what was that at the very end? It looked like waterfall going up. Was that a direct result of updrafts from the waterspouts or what? Thanks for sharing this video.

    I’d have been a bit frightened had I witnessed three waterspouts coming off the ocean…wow.
