A giant waterspout was seen off the coast of Louisiana on the morning of Sunday, August 23, as the state was warned to brace for the impact of Hurricane Marco.
Kyle Crouchet filmed this video of the waterspout, which he told Storyful could be seen from his position on an offshore platform south of Galliano in Louisiana. “That’s massive,” a voice can be heard saying in the background of the video.
Tropical Storm Marco was upgraded to a hurricane on the Sunday as it approached the US coast, which it was predicted to skirt on Monday.
The National Weather Service warned there was the risk of a “supercell tornado” near the central Gulf Coast as the hurricane made landfall. Credit: Kyle Crouchet via Storyful
