A large waterspout phenomenon was observed and filmed close to the shore of the Catalan city of Tarragona on Sunday, September 14.

According to The Local – Spain, visitors to El Torn de l'Hospitalet de l'Infant nudist beach and the surrounding area were stunned to see the rotating column of air connecting the sea and low-hanging storm clouds just meters offshore. "It swirled close to the shore in a spectacular vortex of wind and water."

Waterspouts are a rare phenomenon in Spain forming only when especially strong winds are blowing. 

Sunday's waterspout came before the storm that hit most of the Catalonia region in the afternoon and evening, resulting in 288 calls to emergency services by people affected by torrential downpours.
