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.
The video below was captured by Jason Fitzgerald of Port Macquarie off Old Bar beach.
Here are a couple more shots captured by Naomi Clarke:

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.
