Onlookers caught a glimpse of a waterspout on Lake Zurich, Switzerland.

Although the weather on the lake remained at 23°C, air temperature measured only 9°C, which led to the creation of the vortex over the water.

Waterspouts differ from their on-land counterparts, tornados, by commonly being much weaker in strength.

However, the natural phenomenon can cause damage if it passes by docked boats.
