A Phenomenon. A shortly after the discovery of Chippewa on Tuesday last, a curious and singular phenomenon was observed on Lake Erie from this village [Buffalo]. Several water-spouts ascended to the clouds; one of which was very large, and the others smaller. The first appearance was like a whirlwind on the water, which raised a spray of a large diameter to a considerable distance in the air, from the top of which was seen to rise a column of water increasing in size until it was lost among the clouds. – Buffalo Gazette.
COMMENT: Water spouts, caused by a temperature difference between the warmer water and colder air a few thousand feet up, are not uncommon on Lake Erie. Three were reported on July 29, 2013. The USS Chippewa, a schooner, had been driven aground near Buffalo on Oct. 12, 1813—where she would remain until burned by the British in December.
