Excellent Video of the 2011 Carolina Beach Waterspout

This video is from last year's waterspout and was just recently uploaded to Youtube by jmkesler. It is the best one that I've seen to date. It really shows just how close some people actually got to the spout. Some noteworthy spots: 

At 5:50, people begin to flee as it is apparent the spout is about to hit land. 

At 5:55, a gentleman attempts to get his beach chair as it is sucked into the spout. 

At 6:13, a gentleman walking on a beach access pier nonchalantly watches the spout as it closes in on him. 

The total length is 6:58 minutes and it's worth watching in its entirety.
