Mother nature put on a spectacular show with a pair of waterspouts whipping up the sea off Koh Larn.
The tornado, which never reached land, looked to some Thais like an elephant trunk and hung around long enough between the near and far islands for people to capture pictures and videos of it May 21.
Koh Larn business owner Kreignkrai Suriwong posted a video of one of the spouts online. He said there actually were two, just two minutes apart.
No one was injured.
Kreignkrai said these were the first waterborne tornados he’d seen in Pattaya, but they are not uncommon, with at least one incident reported every rainy season.
