"tromba" (elefant's long nose) is "trunk" in English. "tromba d'água" (intense columnar vortex that occurs over a body of water) is "waterspout" in English. Please add those translations.

    "Trunk" has already been added, though it's not online yet. I'll have to send "tromba d'água" or "tromba de água" to the Portuguese Base editor so that she can add that term in Portuguese.
    Keep 'em coming.
