Six Giant Waterspouts Appeared Just Ahead of Laura's Arrival


It's beautiful in one way, but with Hurricane Laura bearing down on the Gulf Coast it's also terrifying. Before these folks evacuated an offshore rig, ahead of tropical storm Marco and Hurricane Laura, they captured the moment that waterspouts surrounded them. In all, 6 or 7 giant waterspouts appeared just off the oil rig platform. The scary sight led them to seek shelter.Hurricane Laura made landfall as a Category 4 storm, but it has since weakened to a Category 2. It still have winds of 110 mph. Further weakening will continue, and Laura will likely become a tropical storm later today as it tracks from Louisiana into Arkansas.
