On Saturday, Oct.10, the indignant ocean sent forth a mighty waterspout at an undeserving 18-wheeler traveling just outside of Tampa. 

According to CNN, while crossing the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, the waterspout hit Randall Leaver's U.S. Postal Service truck, knocking it over on its side and then righting it shortly after.

Watch the video of the incident below. 

“All of a sudden I felt a gust of wind and I thought, 'Is this what I think it is?’” Leaver said to CNN. “I’ve never been to Hell. I thought I was in Hell.”

Remarkably, Leaver walked away from the ordeal with only minor bruises.
