Australian TV Captures Video Of Waterspouts Near Sydney

(By Mark Joyella, Mediaite) - Australia’s 7 Network had its chopper in the right place at the right time, capturing amazing video of waterspouts off the coast north of Sydney. The helicopter shots, which aired live on 7’s 'The Morning Show', reached a height of two thousand feet, but never reached land. As viewers watched, the powerful waterspouts made for amazing–but ultimately non-threatening–images. “It looked pretty impressive,” one viewer told the network. “I wouldn’t have liked to have been in a boat out there.”

The waterspouts formed in the ocean off the coast of New South Wales as strong winds and heavy rains caused flooding and traffic problems in the Sydney area over the weekend.
