CAUGHT ON CAMERA: Waterspouts in Louisiana and Tampa

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA, F.L. -

A massive waterspout had all eyes focused on Louisiana's Gulf Coast Wednesday.

Watch the video and you can see a large cloud funneling down into the Gulf of Mexico and kicking up the water below.

While there was some minor property damage, no one was hurt.

Mother Nature put on quite a show for Florida drivers crossing a couple of Tampa Bay bridges Wednesday as well.

The funnel whipped around the Bay for nearly nine minutes.  It never made it to shore and there were no reports of damage.

Waterspouts can do quick damage if they move ashore, tearing up porches, trees and lawn furniture; However, once on land, they typically fall apart quickly.
