Large waterspout swirls near Genoa Aiport in Italy

A storm chaser filmed this impressive waterspout which formed near Genoa Airport in Italy on Saturday (August 29th).

According to the filmer Olivier Staiger, it began at around 10:40 am local time and lasted more than 10 minutes.

Staiger drover overnight from Switzerland to Italy specifically to hunt for waterspouts.

"The weather conditions were favourable for severe thunderstorms to produce waterspouts near Genoa," he said.

He saw four of the tornado-like vortexes in total but the one featured in this 4K clip was the most spectacular, he said.
