No need to run. Waterspout dissolves when they hit land.

What? Waterspouts are tornadoes. Why would they dissolve?

They are not the same as tornadoes.

Yes, they are. waterspouts are most commonly non-supercell tornadoes that occur over a body of water connected to a cumuliform cloud.

Waterspouts contain water droplets. Tornadoes don't.

Yes. That it picked up from the water. Is there a different name for when a tornado contains a Volvo?

The point is, there is differences between tornadoes and waterspout other than them being over water.

Waterspouts come in two varities. Non-Tornadic and Tornadic. Non-Tornadic waterspouts typically don't hit land, because they don't move. The idea that a non-tornadic waterspout cannot hit land is a myth as it is possibly for the funnel itself to move about a bit on the edge of a coast, though it does reduce it's life considerably after it becomes a landspout. They are still very dangerous, and you don't want to go near them. Tornadic waterspouts do move, and can transition from water to land due to them being tornados. Tornadic waterspouts typically start as land tornados and move off to the water, but it is possible to get the reverse. Either way, it's never a wise idea to get this close.

No, there isnt. Whats in the tornado makes no difference to whether or not its a tornado.
