MATHEWS COUNTY, Va. – Viewer Megan Balderson captured video of a waterspout forming over the Chesapeake Bay in Mathews County yesterday.

Waterspouts are columns of wind filled with clouds that rotate over water. They are most common in warm, humid areas, as they require high humidity levels and water temperatures to form.
