Photos and video show what appears to be a waterspout off the North Carolina coast earlier this week.

WAVY reported that several viewers sent in images of the incident Thursday off the coast of the Outer Banks.

People reported seeing the waterspout in the Nags Head, Wanchese and Oregon Inlet areas, according to the TV station. There were no reports of any damages or injuries.

Storms moved through the Outer Banks on Thursday, but were mostly contained to the Pea Island Wildlife Refuge area, according to WAVY.

A waterspout is a rotating column of water and spray formed by a whirlwind occurring over the sea or other body of water.
