Holy Marconi, that's a doozy. Saw a few wimpy little ones here on Lake Ontario during the last sail of the season. This is what I was hoping to see.

CNN fake news? Have not seen any other footage in local media yet.

Not fake. Youtube is the great equalizer for non fake posts. Post dates confirm the truth.

Just asking, because France imposed a new law against fake news recently... Could be they banned the footage.

This puny little one was about 12 miles east of us. We were a bit busy to get a good shot of two that had formed.

Re: From CNN: Massive waterspout churns off Italian coast

Wow, thats a beast as waterspouts go!

Ive seen a lot of them in the GOM & W Carib.

There is an area off Belize where they are common when conditions are right. Saw 3 at once there, but all tiny compared to this beast. Got a pic of one there:
