Huge Waterspout Spotted on French Riviera

A huge waterspout formed off the coast of the French Riviera town of Saint-Cyr on Saturday, October 3. The late afternoon waterspout heralded an evening of storms across the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region with flash floods in Cannes and the Ligue 1 football match between Nice and Nantes abandoned at half time because of torrential rain.
