A waterspout formed in the Baltic Sea near the German port city of Kiel, Schleswig-Holstein on Wednesday, September 29, 2021, and moved onshore, injuring at least 7 people, of which 3 severely.
Several members of a rowing club were thrown into the water while others jumped into the water to help them reach the shore.1
The tornado also downed trees and torn off roofs of several buildings.
The German Weather Service (DWD) had previously forecast winds of up to 110 km/h (70 mph) for the area from Wednesday evening until around midday Thursday, as well as exceptionally heavy rain into the weekend.
