These photos, provided by television station WTOC , show waterspouts that formed offshore in southern Beaufort County just before noon Monday.
The spouts, which were moving toward land, prompted the National Weather Service to issue a tornado warning. However, the warning was canceled at about noon when the spouts dissipated. Above is a shot of the skies over Leamington Beach at Palmetto Dunes. The smaller photo was shot from Palmetto Bluff, overlooking a sandbar in the May River.
