Two young children witnessed a waterspout as their mother drove them along a highway at Emerald Isle, North Carolina, on July 6.
Ashleigh Gerock filmed a video that showed a grey waterspout spinning in the distance whilst driving with her son, William, and her daughter, Charlee. “I wanna see the tomato," William, her son says in the video when he sees the tornado-like cylinder. “It’s a tornado, not a tomato,” Gerock can be heard correcting the child.
“William was excited about the ‘tomato’ and Charlee was terrified,” Gerock wrote in a Facebook caption alongside the video. Credit: Ashleigh Gerock via Storyful
