      Waterspout dances off Louisiana coast

      For the second day in a row, a tornado made a very public appearance. This time it was a big waterspout that formed just off Grand Isle, Louisiana, making for some dramatic photos and videos.

      The National Weather Service said the funnel eventually moved on shore (turning it from being called a waterspout to a tornado -- they're the same thing, just one's over water; the other over land) and partially damaging a camp roof.

      There were no reports of anyone hurt.

      Here are some of the videos I found on YouTube of the event:









      (Apparently waterspouts are somewhat common there. There are several other waterspout videos on YouTube from earlier years.)

      And here are some more dramatic photos that have made their way around Twitter:
