Citizens near Kenosha, Wis. were concerned after two waterspouts formed over Lake Michigan yesterday.
According to the Chicago Sun-Times:
"Two waterspouts that formed over Lake Michigan near Kenosha, Wis., drew looks of awe Thursday afternoon, as well as calls to local police from concerned citizens.
“I saw them from an overpass on my way to work,” said Kenosha Police Capt. Tom Hansche. “About 10 minutes later I got to work and there was no mayhem, so I figured it would be all right.”
He figured right.
The waterspouts, which are funnel clouds that develop over water, spun southeast and dissipated harmlessly over the lake. They lasted for about 15 minutes beginning just after 1 p.m., causing no damage on land or to boaters."
