New Year’s Day diners were stunned when a massive waterspout flies across the surface of the sea.

Evren Maner was enjoying a family meal overlooking the Mediterranean Sea in Kyrenia, Cyprus, when dark clouds rolled in.

Quickly, a huge water spout extending from the sky to the sea rolls in, even bending at what is almost a 90-degree angle.

Whipping up the surf, the spout passes by the restaurant window in an impressive show of mother nature.

Evren, owner of Quip Productions, said: “This was a once in a lifetime experience for me.

“I’ve never seen anything like it.

“Fortunately, the spout passed without causing any damage.”
