Ship misses deadly water spout by matter of moments

Close call: This twister passed so close to the ship pictured that it appeared to be towering over it

Swirling darkly over the sea, this twister has the power to toss aside swimmers, boats and even aircraft that cross its path.

But for the sailors on board the towering column of water wasn’t a Hollywood film – but nature at its most terrifying.

This enormous water tornado passed off the Italian coast, narrowly avoiding hitting a giant container ship.


About Indian Rocks Bridge

We have a HUGE responsibility to protect our children and their futures. Our Gulf of Mexico has nearly been destroyed by the Deep-water Horizon catastrophe and many families here will never recover. Paradise lost, so it goes. I’m doing my best to apolitically educate anyone that cares about the impact on our environment by technology and “for-profit” progress. We forget, too frequently that we SHARE this planet with millions of other life-forms and as the most “powerful” species, we must be more cognizant of our greed versus the well-being of our planet. Thanks again for visiting and please check back often. -Gregg
