A fascinating but frightening force of nature-- waterspouts form on Lake Michigan near Wisconsin.

The waterspouts were viewable from the Wisconsin lakefront Saturday and forecasters say conditions could trigger more of them on Monday. Boaters are on alert; winds around waterspouts can reach up to 60 miles per hour.
