A Louisiana oil rig worker has captured the rare sight of three waterspouts in a line near his offshore platform.
Raney Frederick posted the incredible footage to his Facebook page today.
"This is the first time I’ve ever seen multiple water spouts 🌪 at the same time like this.
"There was actually 5 of them in a line but these 3 were really close to our platform," he wrote on the post.
Mr Frederick replied to a comment on the video that wild weather in the area means the workers may be evacuated over the weekend for safety reasons.
