MILWAUKEE -- Several TODAY'S TMJ4 viewers reported seeing a waterspout over Lake Michigan Friday morning.
The relatively uncommon meteorological phenomenon was spotted from Lake Park by Rachel Krueger.
Thanks so much Rachel: perfect timing! And what a cool sight for the morning workout! #weatherwarriors https://t.co/cg5PsBXO0i

Though the waterspout stayed over Lake Michigan, flash flooding north of Milwaukee closed all lanes of I-43 near Good Hope Rd. Friday morning. Several cars were stranded in the floodwaters.
