A spectacular tornado over water in Kyrenia

Sightseers in the northern town of Kyrenia were mesmerized on Tuesday upon coming across a spectacular waterspout over choppy waters, with videos of the natural phenomenon quickly going viral.

Several videos were posted on social media, including a tweet by Severe Weather EU that was recorded by a local weather enthusiast.

Waterspouts were not seen frequently in Cyprus until recently, as marine weather was described as uneventful except from choppy seas and high winds.
