Waterspouts are columns of cloud-filled wind that can occur when a tornado forms over a large body of water. There are two major types of water-based tornadoes: tornadic waterspouts and fair-weather waterspouts.
Tornadic waterspouts begin as tornadoes and are influenced by winds from severe thunderstorms. The more common, and fortunately less dangerous, fair-weather waterspouts descend from clouds that are as fast-moving -- giving them a tendency to remain static.
