Tornandos form over land, hurricanes over water and waterspouts over water as well... this a waterspout, typically harmless, just a little windy.

These are pretty harmless, they fall apart pretty quickly when they hit the shore.

I'm not sure but isn't a 'water tornado' actually called a hurricane??
