We've seen no video yet of this event, but the National Weather Service is reporting that the Hatteras-to-Ocracoke Ferry captain reported "a couple" of waterspouts at 10:14 a.m. today (Thursday) at the Hatteras inlet.
The waterspouts were apparently connected with thunderstorms in the area this morning. The advice from the NWS forecast office at Newport/Morehead City:
"WATERSPOUTS CAN EASILY OVERTURN BOATS AND CREATE LOCALLY HAZARDOUS SEAS. SEEK SAFE HARBOR IMMEDIATELY."
Obviously, if you're down there on vacation, and have stills or video, please email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will post them. Here's a You Tube video of a waterspout oiff Kill Devil Hills in 2008.
