Waterspouts spotted in Khatib and Pasir Ris

Several waterspouts have been spotted in various parts of Singapore recently. Stomp contributors have sent in pictures of them, awed by their unique shape.

A waterspout is defined as "an intense columnar vortex (usually appearing as a funnel-shaped cloud) that occurs over a body of water, connected to a cumuliform cloud."

Stomp contributor Ash sent in a picture of a waterspout he spotted in Khatib.

He said:

"Cool cloud found at Khatib. Lately I've been seeing these types of clouds appearing almost everywhere!"

Stomp contributor Lynda sent in pictures of the Pasir Ris waterspout, which she felt the spirals made it look like twister.
