A waterspout was spotted in Santa Rosa Sound, before spinning onto Portofino Resort property in Pensacola, Florida, on Wednesday, June 21. This video was taken from the 16th floor of the resort. The waterspout entered the sound from the Gulf, then traveled across the water towards the Bay Street and the Tiger Point area, according to reports. Nearby Navarre and Pensacola beaches were closed to swimmers on Wednesday, and the entrance to Gulf Islands National Seashore from Navarre Beach was also closed, according to a news report. The Gulf Coast faced a day of turbulent weather with Tropical Storm Cindy expected to make landfall overnight on Wednesday near the Texas-Louisiana border. The uploader of the video said chairs and tables were flying from balconies across the resort. Credit: Twitter/ciscowhit via Storyful
