A huge twister (pix below) or a watersprout as witnessed in Kidurong last year was seen over Dermaga Dalam, Butterworth, on the Penang yesterday.
The twirling dark column descending from the rainy sky appeared off the coast at about 4.15pm yesterday according to The Star.
Witnesses said it swirled menacingly inland before it eventually tapered off and vanished from sight.
The rarely seen watersprout had netizen a field day taking photos and videos of the phenomenon.
A spokesman from the Meteorological Department told The Star there were no reports of a tornado.
