GEORGE TOWN: 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.
