Those traveling along Long Island Sound were front row to a waterspout that formed on nearby waters Tuesday.
A crew member on the LST 510 Cape Henlopen Cross Sound Ferry captured a waterspout forming between New London, Connecticut and Orient Point, New York.
A waterspout is a "funnel which contains an intense vortex, sometimes destructive, of small horizontal extent and which occurs over a body of water," according to Dr. Joseph Golden, a distinguished waterspout authority at NOAA.
Rounds of soaking rain have moved through the Northeast with the threat of severe storms remaining Tuesday night. East Providence, Rhode Island saw dangerous driving conditions with torrential rains flooding roadways.
