In video captured on June 23, strong winds suddenly form off Long Beach Island's Brant Beach, in New Jersey. Though the videographer refers to a "tornado," the National Weather Service has classified it as a "weak waterspout": a column of cloud-filled wind rotating over a body of water. The rotation can be seen in a close look at the video. The storm caused localized damage and reportedly even picked up a 16-foot boat and then dropped it several blocks away.
