Video captures massive waterspout in Italy

Weather

A massive waterspout was filmed as it moved towards land before hitting the port of Salerno in southwest Italy on Tuesday. 

Nobody was injured as the vortex hit the port but one Italian news outlet is reporting that several freight containers in the city’s commercial port were lifted up and thrown around. 

The waterspout quickly dissolved after hitting land.
