Israel\'s first cold front of autumn spawns waterspouts

Parched by several years of drought, Israel received its first rains of the fall season on Friday when a cold front swept in off the Mediterranean Sea, bringing scattered showers along with lightning and thunder and even a rare bout of waterspouts. The ICEJ News team spotted a series of six water spouts forming and dissipating within a half-hour span just offshore north of Netanya, chasing surfers and bathers from the water. Such tornadic activity is rare for the region, but the Bible does speak of whirlwinds in the land in ancient times.
