CLEVELAND, Ohio– Several viewers reported seeing waterspouts over Lake Erie Sunday evening.

There are two types of waterspouts. Tornadic waterspouts are associated with severe storms, according to the National Weather Service. Fair weather waterspouts form in light wind conditions and move very little.

These waterspouts are in the fair weather category.

They are caused when cooler air moves in over warmer water.
