Jack Redilla stoppped to take his picture while driving to work around 11 a.m. in Avon Lake. He said the water spout lasted for about 3 to 4 minutes. The photo was taken at Veterans Memorial Park boat docks near the corner of Route 83 and Lake Road.
Meteorologist Jason Nicholas said there was a storm on radar in that area at about 10:30 a.m. near Ashtabula that indicated a possible waterspout.
