Netizens had a field day uploading images and video clips on social media of a waterspout swirling near Penang Bridge.

Many bridge commuters also took the opportunity to take photos of the phenomenon which occurred about 6pm yesterday.

There was also a 16-second video being circulated on Facebook with one netizen claiming that it was an act of God.

"It's a miracle and act of God when we have such a phenomenon like a tornado," he said.

A waterspout is a rotating column of water formed by a whirlwind occurring over water during bad weather.
