Raw video: Waterspout forms off the coast of Golden Beach, Florida
Multiple Florida residents captured video of a waterspout sliding up the coast.
A waterspout briefly hugged the coast in South Florida Wednesday afternoon, stunning people in the densely populated area who could see it for miles.
It happened in Golden Beach near Aventura around 1 p.m., according to meteorologist John Morales, who retweeted a viewer’s video of the spout.
It showed the churning vortex just offshore, zipping across the coastline.
Other videos showed it from different angles, taken from other parts of the community, including one near the waterfront that showed the water’s surface churning.
It fizzled out after around 10 minutes, according to the National Weather Service, which also warned boaters to head to safe harbor immediately after confirming the waterspout.
