A large waterspout formed near Port of Singapore, Sentosa, southern Singapore on May 11, 2019. There are no reports of damage or casualties. Such large waterspouts are not usual for the region.

The spout formed around 08:48 LT and moved slowly between the iconic Marina Bay Sands hotel and the Singapore Flyer.

National Environment Agency said waterspouts are seen occasionally over Singapore's coastal waters, although they usually dissipate rapidly on reaching the coast.
