BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. - The National Weather Service confirms that a waterspout appeared over the Indian River right next to Beachline Expressway (State Road 528) Wednesday morning.
Barbara, a FOX 35 viewer, saw the waterspout as her husband was driving west on the expressway, and snapped a photo of it in her rearview mirror.
Around 11:20 a.m., the NWS said it received a report from a trained spotter about the waterspout that crossed over the expressway between Merritt Island and Cocoa.
"The spout did lift before reaching the mainland, and likely persisted as a funnel cloud for a bit," the NWS said in a tweet.
FOX 35 Storm Team Meteorologist Brooks Garner says there was a small shower over the Indian River about that time which spawned the waterspout.
