Giant waterspout 'tornado' spotted in Spain video

Incredible footage of a giant waterspout off the coast of Valencia, Spain. The video was filmed during a major storm at around 10am on November 26.

A Spanish resident captured the moment a huge waterspout formed just south of the city of Valencia.

The tornado-like phenomenon is thought to have had wind speeds of more than 50 mph. Thankfully for locals the massive column of water remained over the Mediterranean Sea rather than heading inland.
