A massive water spout was caught off the coast of Israel on Monday.

The sight was recorded on video footage taken by a resident of Ashdod, the coastal city where the spout was spotted.

Ashdod is mentioned several times in the Bible but most notably was the Philistine stronghold where God smote its inhabitants with hemorrhoids in the Book of Samuel:

The hand of Hashem lay heavy upon the Ashdodites, and He wrought havoc among them: He struck Ashdod and its territory with hemorrhoids.(Samuel 1 5:6)
