Water spouts reported in Lake Michigan

KENOSHA, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News)  The pictures on the Internet look like twin tornadoes touching down in Lake Michigan.  Actually, they're water-spouts -- and they put on a spectacular show at Kenosha early yesterday afternoon.  They were spotted around 1:30, after reports of a funnel cloud. 

Kenosha County sheriff's sergeant Bill Beth said the two water-spouts popped out of nowhere, merged into one, and then split.  Coast Guard rescuers searched the lake, after witnesses saw a sailboat disappear.  Searchers could not find any evidence of a missing boat or debris. 

No damage or injuries were reported from the water-spouts.
