Waterspout in Kentucky?


This puzzling datum is from the New York Times, August 24, 1901.

A waterspout on a creek? Seriously? Is that possible? A waterspout is, by definition, a funnel cloud that connects from a cumuliform cloud to a large body of water, usually the ocean or the Great Lakes.

Maybe it happened where Barnett Creek connected with the Rough River?

Nowonder owensboro is spelt like that. Technically, it's pretty much like a tornado. I had just heard of them last year. Pretty interesting.
