EASTPOINT, Fla. (WTXL) — Joshua Parker, who owns Eastpoint Beer Company says he recorded the video of the waterspout in Franklin County Thursday afternoon.

Parker says he received the weather alert only a moment before he saw the waterspout over water.

"And within about a minute, it hit like a freight train," said Parker. "We got a pretty sizable waterspout out across the bay there."

He says this isn't the first time he has seen a waterspout in that area.

It's unclear if there was any damage from the twister on land at this point.
