Rare 5 waterspouts in a row off of the New South Wales coast, Australia


Rare 5 waterspouts in a row were seen off of the New South Wales coast, Australia on May 4, 2021. The storm that spawned them also produced an intense hailstorm.

The waterspouts formed off Old Bar beach, Harrington and recorded by Kirra Jane Moffitt.

  1. Waterspouts were observed by the local aboriginals just before the arrival of the First Fleet of English prisoners to Australia. It was a traditional bad omen. Interesting to see this line up.
