La storm that has left the city of Valencia with an impressive 152 liters per square meter in its streets, came with surprise: a spectacular water sleeve was formed off the Valencian coast, specifically from the regions of Sueca, El Perelló and Cullera.

According to the State Meteorological Agency (AEMET), it is the »sharper and more imposing captured on shore»Of the Valencian Community. It is really impressive.

What are water hoses?

The water hoses, also known as waterspouts, are nothing more than tornadoes formed in the sea. They usually connect to a cumuliform cloud, which is seen quite frequently when the atmosphere is unstable. They don't usually touch land, but You have to be very careful, since they are formed within a very severe electrical storm and produce winds of up to 512km / h.

These tornadoes are quite common in the Mediterranean, although not everyone has the opportunity to see them when they would like. But thank goodness that we will always have the photos and videos of the lucky ones. And the truth is that the one that was formed yesterday off the Valencian coast is spectacular.

Water sleeve in Valencia

As you can see in the video, our protagonist looks very sharp. As indicated by the AEMET, it is probable that the storm that reached Valencia already had some air twist, so that the updrafts accentuated it, thus causing one of the most beautiful natural spectacles of yesterday.

In addition, they indicated that many lightning bolts are being recorded at sea, specifically between Mareny de Barraquetes and El Perellonet, so the appearance of more thrombi is not ruled out, since the coastlines of the provinces of Valencia and Castellón have favorable conditions for these magnificent meteorological phenomena.
