Amazing video of a waterspout coming on shore in North Carolina earlier today (18th August 2011). No injuries were reported!

The waterspout (turned tornado when it hit land) ripped up some walkways along the beach and tossed trashcans around.

In the late 80s I started investigating UFOs and crop circles and joined the CCCS (Centre for Crop Circle Studies) and a local group researching strange sightings and reports along the south coast of Dorset (UK). In the early ’90s I started my own research group called SPS (Strange Phenomena Studies), this was renamed in 2004 to Cryptoworld.
