If you're having trouble seeing the cool tornado action, remember to click and drag to rotate the video. You should see something like this:
This small sand tornado formed at Earthcore, a dance music festival in Australia, this weekend. It joined the party long enough to inspire people to get up and dance and then dissipated just as quickly. I guess this tornado's work was done.
The country experienced some very weird weather over the weekend, especially Colorado.
A group of storm chasers spotted the “Wizard of Oz” IRL Saturday in Eads, and they captured the unusual sight in the video above.
Rain-nado or Torn-bow? You decide.
A photo was also posted to Facebook and Twitter, with some commenters wondering if it was Photoshopped.
Although the video footage proves otherwise.
“Somewhere over the rainbow in Colorado today, there was another rainbow, with a tornado above it!” the Basehunters wrote on Facebook. “An incredible sight to witness in person!”
Sure it’s cool to see, but it’s probably not a great idea to try to find the pot of gold in this case.
Meanwhile in Denver, late season snow on Sunday made for some unpleasant conditions to play baseball, but they did anyway.
The Colorado Rockies tweeted pictures of Coors Field blanketed in snow Sunday ahead of theirafternoon game against the LA Dodgers.
Go home Mother Nature, you’re drunk.
Youtube user TVWXMAN32 is a 25-year veteran storm chaser who made a serious rookie mistake: he missed the highway exit he needed to take to get away from the tornado that hit Tupelo, MS on Monday. Faced with no alternative, he drove his car into the low point on a nearby field, hunkered down, and prayed. Despite the tornado's outer circulation passing right over his car, he survived unharmed.
TVWXMAN32 did exactly what you're supposed to do when in his situation, but his mistake was getting himself into the situation in the first place.
