Waterspout Forms Over Pamlico Sound

A waterspout was spotted off Swan Quarter this afternoon, causing some concern by emergency officials.

Hyde County Emergency Services Director Justin Gibbs says the spout was spotted around 4:20 p.m., some three miles south of Landing Road.

He said Swan Quarter's fire chief saw water churning where the waterspout had touched down in the Pamlico Sound.

Gibbs says it was visible for about 10 minutes, but it never reached the shore and no one was injured.
