A waterspout caught on video in front of Tulum (Watch video)

A waterspout surprised visitors to the beaches of Tulum over the weekend, a characteristic phenomenon of the rainy season. Kilometers away, tourists on the beach in Quintana Roo observed the gray funnel that connected with a cloud in the sea.

A video when the whirlwind seemed to connect the sky and the sea circulated on social media. The phenomenon did not generate any inconvenience other than the amazement of the people who witnessed it.

Last week, the National Meteorological Service (SMN) reported that waterspout formations would occur on its coasts in the Yucatan Peninsula due to the rainy season and the surada effect.

A waterspout is a whirlwind in a body of water, normally connecting with a cumulonimbus cloud, usually found two kilometers high.

There are two types: tornadic and non-tornadic. The former functions like tornadoes that form over water.

In a simplified way, they are tornadoes over water, formed by the mesocyclone, an air vortex up to 10 kilometers in diameter.
