    It seems you already know the answer since you posted a picture lol. smile

    A waterspout is simply a tornado that forms on water. If it moves to land, it becomes a tornado.

    A column of water formed between the clouds and the sea by the action of a whirlwind. It begins as a funnel-shaped cloud, which descends slowly till it meets a conical body of water rising from the sea. After a time the waterspout bursts. Some authorities think that the water in the column is made up largely of rain gathered by the whirlwind into a small space. Waterspouts are most common in the tropics.
