GMoney Funk Daddy : Thanks for the positive comments! From what we understand, it was on land, came to water, then back to land. So tornado, water spout, awesome is all i know! Lol

C. Frank : That was the MOST AWESOME footage I've ever seen. storm chasers don't get that great of footage. Fantastic video

RockHead TM : I live in sc.... when I saw this I said "only people in South Carolina would be running in circles around the beach during a tornado.😂

Alex Tocqueville : Our videographer is quite correct in his intuitive statements in the first part of the video. They were staring directly at a rapidly rotating wall cloud. Bad shit happens when you see one of those.

mgrella63 : That couldve been a major tragedy if it tracked closer to the hotels! Thank God it didnt

MikePlaysIt : Amazing opportunity to study the anatomy of a tornado/waterspout and to actually see how they work. With the water and sand getting sucked in along the ground in bands, being drawn up along the side. Man this was an amazing video.

Poop McFarts : I remember seeing this from my hotel room. I was about 5 when and I remember being amazed by the power.

Kazz : "Look at all those people down there, those idiots" - man standing on the highest floor outside near glass windows not going for cover with a tornado coming toward him 2001

tori t : Wild. I left the beach 5 minutes before this tornado hit. I was on vacation to visit my family. Then the second tornado struck down near us after we left! I was a kid, so I was scared shitless

Muzikrazy213 : you got the waterspout. on the other side of it, there was an actual ef2 tornado on land. this is by far the best footage of the waterspout though. amazing

Eric R : I was there that day. There were a couple tornadoes. One went right through my hotel but it was relatively weak. Made the lowest sound humanly imaginable. Picked up all the plastic chairs at the pool and tossed them around like rag dolls. Shattered every window at the adjacent hotel but ours was relatively unharmed. I watched a transformer malfunction while staring at the one caught on this video. It emitted a green flash. I was about 2-300 yards away on the other side of it.
