Meteorological experts explain that it is a water hose, a spiral air column that forms like a tornado over water.
A rare phenomenon consisting of the rise of seawater in the form of a thin swirl on a cliff was recorded Monday by a witness in the Faroe Islands (Denmark).
Samy Jacobsen was walking along the cliffs of Suduroy when he saw how the sea waters formed an elongated vortex that ascended about 470 meters along the wall of a cliff.
Greg Dewhurst, a meteorologist at the local Meteorological Office, described the spectacular phenomenon as a water hose , a spiral air column that forms like a tornado over the water when a cliff edge turns the wind in a circle.
