FORT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) — Beach-goers were confronted with a bizarre phenomenon along Ft. Lauderdale beach.

A large waterspout formed just off the coast Saturday afternoon, near the Bahia Mar Hotel.

Swirling winds whipped over the water like a small tornado, creating a columnar vortex that damaged catamarans and beach chairs.

Videos popped up across social media showing the strange sight.
