A Cyprus resident managed to video a waterspout which was spotted on Friday afternoon just off the coast of Ayia Napa.
The video, uploaded to Facebook by What's On Cyprus, shows the waterspout clearly visible from the Cape Greko road.
The meteorological office on Friday issued a Yellow Weather Warning urging caution due to heavy thunderstorms across the island.
"A mesmerizing vortex that spins down from a cloud to the surface of the ocean is one description of a waterspout. A starker definition is that it’s a tornado over water. Waterspouts may beguile you with their ephemeral beauty, but they pose a serious hazard for boats and a threat to anyone in their path if they come ashore" says Southern Boating.
