Mother Nature was showcasing her strength out in Mobile Bay this week, and many folks caught a glimpse of her action. There were multiple reports of a waterspout Tuesday morning over Mobile Bay near Fairhope around 9am. The National Weather Service issued a tornado warning for Baldwin County , as they were were concerned it would move onshore as a tornado. However, it dissipated as it brushed dangerously close to the shore. Also, another waterspout was spotted south of the Bay Way, in the northern part of Mobile Bay.
The Local 15 Newsroom was inundated with pictures and video beginning this morning, taken by our viewers who saw the waterspout off the Eastern Shore near Fairhope.
Many videos posted quickly on YouTube and Facebook, showed the funnel cloud spinning away.
