Huge waterspout buzzes boat in southern Italy – July 17, 2018

In a move which series “Storm Chasers” fans will find more reminiscent of the TIV and the Dominator, a boat made a near-intercept of a large waterspout.

The massive waterspout formed off the coast of Minori, Salerno (Campania), southwestern Italy in the morning of July 17. The waterspout grazed a boat, passing it within meters. We would definitely love to see the footage from the boat! Definitely a view worthy of “Storm Chasers”!

Below is another view, from a somewhat larger distance – certainly a beautiful waterspout!

Lots of lightning activity across Europe through the first half of this week
