Two water spouts were spotted off the coast of Lake Michigan on Sept. 13, according to the Associated Press. The funnel clouds that took the water up were sighted a few miles from Kenosha, Wis.

Onlookers say that the day was relatively serene when the spouts seemingly dropped out of nowhere. One said that the spouts merged into one at a certain point, only to split again.

Weather forecasters say the likelihood of spouts in Lake Michigan goes up between August and October each year. But it was warmer lake temperatures and cool air in the atmosphere that made the spouts particularly likely on Friday.
