A video of a weather phenomenon posted online is raising some eyebrows.

The video shows a tornado-like tube between the ocean and the clouds near Bay St. George.

Environment Canada Meteorologist David Neal says there is a good chance it was a water spout.

Neal says it is essentially a tornado that forms over the water and it is associated with thunderstorms.

He says they are not overly common but conditions can exist anytime there is a line of thunderstorms across the offshore.
