A waterspout formed off the coast of Genoa, Italy, on November 7, capturing the attention of several onlookers as well as a particular dog, who would not stop barking as the weather system continued to whirl. Valentina Marchioni captured the footage as she was walking along Genoa’s Porto Antico tourist promenade. Marchioni’s video shows the waterspout slowly move past a row of waterfront buildings, while the dog, who eventually appears in the video for a moment, can be heard barking off camera. There are two types of waterspouts: tornadic waterspouts that begin as tornados on land and move to water, or fair weather waterspouts, which are much more common, rarely dangerous, and most likely the type of waterspout that appears in this video. No structural damage or injuries were reported. Credit: Valentina Marchioni via Storyful
