Incredible! Rare sea vortex caught on camera

This is the incredible moment water flowed UPWARDS - after waves were caught in a rare sea vortex. Samy Jacobsen, 41, was out walking along the cliffs off Suðuroy in the Faroe Islands when he spotted a whirlwind of water rising from the waves. He watched as the vortex of spray climbed up the side of the 470m sea cliff - known as Beinisvørð - and billowing on to the cliff top, on Monday. Weather experts said it was a water spout - a spiralling pillar of air - which forms like a tornado over the water when a cliff edge spins the wind in a circle. This video was filmed Monday 6th January 2020.
