JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The National Weather Service on Wednesday confirmed that a possible waterspout was captured on video near Green Cove Springs over the St. Johns River.

SnapJax user GypsySoul shared the video. Take a look:

“The video is obviously a little further away than we would like to 100 percent confirm it, but it looks more than just a funnel cloud. It looks like it does go all the way down into the St Johns,” explained Weather Authority meteorologist Danielle Uliano.
