CHALMETTE, LA - A severe thunderstorm over Lake Borgne spun up a waterspout large enough to be seen in Chalmette.

Jeffrey Pohlmann took these photos this afternoon of the waterspout around 1:45 p.m. The National Weather Service issued a special marine statement before the waterspout formed that warned of quick spin ups this afternoon from the nearly stationary storm.
