As El Nino winter continues, another major storm system is tracking over the South.

This time, the setup produced what’s referred to as a "particularly dangerous situation" by the Storm Prediction Center in Norman Oklahoma.

Early Tuesday, the agency gave a moderate risk of severe weather, extending all the way from New Orleans into the Florida Panhandle.

Severe storms got off to an early start Tuesday, and by 12:15 p.m., a video surfaced on social media of waterspouts tracking over Lake Pontchartrain, just north of New Orleans.

The storm that produced the waterspouts had been under a tornado warning before and after its track over the Lake.

The main funnel is considered a tornadic waterspout, essentially a tornado over water.

The two smaller waterspouts on either side are likely satellite tornadoes, rotating around the main funnel. Multiple tornadoes like this are usually associated with big, strong supercellular thunderstorms.
