Now There's Something You Don't See Every Day...

What may be a new record for number of waterspouts:

That's the Gulf of Mexico.
For whatever reason they tend to happen off Russia as well:

The main story is a plane landing among multiple tornadoes

...This is, of course, a great excuse to dig up the big dog of waterspout pictures, from our post "Dear Kansas, I'll See ya and Raise: Five Tornados at one time off Novorossiysk, Russia":

Okay, waterspouts. if you're going to get all technical on me.

Russia Today:
No less then five tornadoes have sprung up just a kilometer out at sea from the port town of Novorossiysk....
The record is nine in one picture, over Lake Michigan.
