Three waterspouts (tatsumaki) observed from Niigata Airport

They are some of the last things I want to see in the airport.
There was a tornado in adjacent Akita Pref. yesterday.
Be careful if you go to these areas.

Thank you, valve bouncer.
,too.

I googled. Japanese people call both tornadoes and waterspouts "tatsumaki". One word. That's why I made a mistake. I am sorry.

There was yet another tornado in Akita yesterday.
