Awesome, snake-like waterspout swirls across Simcoe as cottagers watch in awe

This spectacular tornadic waterspout was spawned as a cluster of high-precipitation storms moved eastward through Southern Ontario during the mid-afternoon. As one storm in particular passed through Barrie, it exhibited very low cloud bases and – reportedly – considerable motion. Somewhere over the lake the tornado developed at around 4:20pm. It was a long serpentine tube that snaked to the surface with a ring of spray at its base. One family caught the spout on video, filming in awe and debating how to react as it moved across the water near Georgina Island.
