More Water Spouts Predicted In Malaysian Waters

Water spout seen from Pengkalan Teluk Buih, Air Papan, Mersing, Malaysia on June 18, 2011. (

At about 3:30 pm on June 18, 2011, villagers in Pengkalan Teluk Buih, Air Papan, Mersing, Johore were surprised to see a water spout that swiftly moved towards their village.

A lot of fishermen’s boats were reported damaged.

Water spout rarely happens in Malaysian waters in the past.

Anyway the Meteorological Department predicts that the changing climate could result in more waterspouts in certain areas such as the one that occurred here.

Similar waterspouts had been detected in Penang, Selangor, Malacca, Sarawak and Sabah.

Water spout is something like a tornado(twister) but it started in the sea or ocean. 

It is a disaster.
