In the video – taken off the port of Coatzacoalcos – the waterspout can be seen moving along the coast of the port, passing just a few metres from the land.
It quickly moves around the island towards a boat.
According to the Ministry of Civil Protection, the waterspout affected homes and schools.
This ministry sent specialised personnel to carry out damage assessment and warned that rain, winds and floods are expected in the area, so they urged the population to take precautions in the case of more weather phenomenons.
Fortunately, no injuries or disappearances have been reported.
A waterspout is a vortex or whirlpool that occurs over water, usually associated with cumulonimbus clouds that are those that have great vertical development.
The phenomenon is similar to a tornado but less intense, it usually forms in deep waters and lasts a short time.
They are associated with changes in atmospheric pressure, as well as the collisions of a cold front with a warm front that cause the vortex.
It comes after a freak tornado ripped a roof off a building in Manchester only weeks ago.
A piece of the roof fell onto a car outside the house.
Locals in Hull were blown away after spotting a so-called tornado.
A video captured the moment it hovered in the sky.
