    while you were there, did you see anything in the resort newspapers or on the tv news talking about it?

    was it scary to see something like that?
    we saw a waterspout a number of years ago and we were clueless.........just sat there at the beach and said to dear husband something like "wonder what that is?"

    about 47 seconds into the video, you'll be able to see the funnel form.

    it is a tropical island. I really don't think Aruba gets many tornadoes.

    Yes there was a tornado, I was on the island on that date, did not see it but a friend of mine who lives there in Paradera saw it from his house and told me about it. I live in Ct and we never got any tornados either but they are more abundant here now. All kinds of wierd weather is affecting areas that have never or seldom occured before. I wouldn't be suprised if more tornado's will be hitting the island. Just my 2 cents.
