A massive waterspout was spotted over the sea near a Chinese tourist attraction last Sunday, May 26. The video, filmed in Yangjiang City in southern China's Guangdong Province, shows a twister swirling above the water about 30 meters into the air.
This is the dramatic moment raging floodwaters in Honduras almost swept a biker over a cliff at the side of a road on May 10. Though the biker was knocked off his vehicle, he was eventually hauled to safety on the other side of the flooded road.
spate of tornadoes touched down Friday in rural parts of Nebraska, tearing up trees, powerlines, farm buildings and damaging some homes, and one storm chaser had an extraordinarily close encounter with a forming twister.
AccuWeather storm chaser Reed Timmer found himself in the midst of a rapidly developing vortex west of McCook, Nebraska, around 6 p.m. local time.
"I was unable to get back to the vehicle and couldn't see it, so I just turned my back to the wind and hoped for the best until it passed," Timmer said.
This is the moment a man sheltering from a storm was hoisted into the air by the wind. The man was holding on to a support attached to a tin roof when the shelter was blown up by the wind - taking him with it. The video shows him dangling in the air, hanging on to the pole, before he lets go and falls to the ground, before running away. One local said: "The storm winds were so high that within a moment, the tin roof was blown up along with the support which the man held for his safety.
A Chinese man luckily survived falling into a river after the six-meter-high river bank collapsed underneath him in Baoding City, north China's Hebei Province. Reportedly, the man was deliberately jumping beside a large crack on the riverbank just minutes before the incident.
At about 11:45 p.m. last Friday, several people witnessed a meteor flying over the skies of Chicago, and naturally, many took to social media to share the footage they captured of the event.
For instance, in the north suburban area of Riverwoods, some residents were able to capture the event with their security cameras, while a police officer in the west suburbs of Woodridge also captured the event with a dash cam.
