– A waterspout that formed with a thunderstorm over the Croatan Sound ripped across Roanoke Island Monday evening, leaving behind damaged roofs and downed tree limbs before continuing into the Roanoke Sound.

Garnette Guyton of Duck Cottage Downtown Books captured dramatic video of the waterspout moving parallel to the Nags Head-Manteo Causeway.

Damage has been found so far in the Vista Lake Drive neighborhood and along U.S. 64 on the south end of Manteo. No injuries have been reported.

The National Weather Service in Newport/Morehead City it will be Tuesday or Wednesday before they could get a meteorologist in the area to determine the exact strength of the twister.

But according to our video and photos, they would classify it unofficially as an EF-0 or low-end EF-1 tornado.
