Tornados over Enriquillo Lake
Videos and images of spectacular waterspouts, along with a hailstorm, were shared on Twitter on Thursday, 22 September 2016, as reported in Diario Libre. The weather phenomenon was witnessed around Enriquillo Lake, near the city of Jimani, according to spectators.
Metereologist Jean Suriel says this is the first time that this sort of whirling column of air and water mist has been observed. These small-diameter tornados form over water before moving over land.
In a post on Twitter, National Weather Service (Onamet) director Gloria Ceballos said that conditions in the area were generating clouds that favored the formation of this phenomenon.
