A water spout has been seen in Haor, Kishoreganj. This water spout was seen on the southeast side of the Chiloni Bridge on the Itna Allweather road of the upazila around 6:20 pm on Tuesday. However, no damage was reported in this incident.

Local resident Mokhlesur Rahman said locals saw the water spout at 6:20 pm on Tuesday at Haor on the south-east side of the Chiloni Bridge on the Itna Allweather road in Kishoreganj.  

Later, he made a video and shared it on social media Facebook which went viral.

He added that the swirling of water can often be seen along the water and the sky. Such a water spout has not been seen in Haor in the past few years. However, within a few days, this incident was seen in some parts of the country. 

Locals said that a water spout has never been seen before in Haor, Kishoreganj. Many of the locals have seen the water spout, they are also surprised.

According to various sources, the water spout is caused by a “tornado made of air wrapped in water”. When a strong tornado forms over a body of water, the water rises up in a columnar rotation along the center of the tornado under the pull of high-velocity rotating air. It is called Water Spout. However, in rural areas, it is known as “Meghashoor”.
