There Is A Chance For Water Spouts Today

According to the National Weather Service in Eureka, there is a chance for water spouts today due to thunderstorm activity over the ocean. This is something to be concerned with it you plan on being out there in a boat but I don't know of anyone that would go our into the Pacific Ocean near Eureka today. It looks like a chocolaty blender and not something you would want to navigate. The water spouts if they materialize should stay over the water but one never knows.

Here is what they sent out:

  1. Someone was brave enough to go out into Humboldt Bay today and had to be rescued.

  3. If the bay looked anything like Trinidad Harbor today, your adjective may be more applicable Johannes the Mystik.
