A huge 1,000ft waterspout caused a storm on a popular beach after swirling around at incredibly high speeds - forcing a yacht to flee in a hurry.  As a storm turned the sky grey this week, a wispy cloud emerged and began to swirl around and headed towards the water.  <br />
<br />
The freak occurrence - known as an intense columnar vortex - was spotted by a photographer as she glanced out of her window.  Pamela Pauline, 53, was amazed when she looked out from Bungan Beach in Mona Vale, a suburb of Sydney, Australia, to see the one-of-the-kind sight.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
