Event Narrative On the evening of August 19th, a very rare waterspout developed over the Ross Barnett Reservoir. According to pictures and eyewitness accounts, the waterspout occurred over the upper end of the reservoir just to the west of the Goshen Springs community, southwest of the MS Highway 43 Pearl River crossing. The waterspout was associated with a developing rain shower, and initially there was little or no precipitation occurring in the area when it developed around 6:45pm CDT. The waterspout remained nearly stationary for about 10 to 15 minutes before dissipating.
