Krabi waterspout excites tourists, fishermen

PHUKET: A waterspout put on a show for tourists and fishermen off Koh Pu in Krabi yesterday morning.

“My friends and I were going fishing at Sri Boya Island when the waterspout emerged about 1 kilometer away from us,” said 50-year-old Samart Maikeaw, who was out on a fishing trip with friends.

The spout caused sudden heavy rain, but no damage was reported.

A waterspout is usually a non-supercell tornado over the water, which is connected to a towering cumuli-form or cumulonimbus cloud. Mr Samart seized the moment and took photos of the column before sharing it on the popular mobile application LINE.
