Tampa Bay, Florida waterspout, by Joey Mole
(From NASA's Astronomy Picture of the Day)
We get an occasional heatwave, a tornado or two, some flash flooding and snow. According to NASA, the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Florida is arguably the most active area in the world for waterspouts, with hundreds forming each year. Some people speculate that waterspouts are responsible for some of the losses recorded in the Bermuda Triangle.
Most disappearances in our area can be attributed to PennDOT.
