Mother nature put on quite a show for Florida motorists crossing a couple of Tampa Bay bridges Wednesday (6/19).

A giant waterspout formed around 12:30 in the afternoon, touching down between the Howard Frankland and Gandy bridges.

The funnel whipped around the bay for nearly nine minutes, moving from the southwest to the northeast.

It did not make it to shore and there were no reports of damage.

Waterspounts can do quick damage if they move ashore, tearing up porches, trees and lawn furniture.

However once on land, they typically fall apart quickly.
