Incredible storm in Germany knocks over massive trees with ease

Eight people were killed in Germany as Friederike, the strongest windstorm in 11 years, whipped through on Thursday. A trail of wind damage was left in its wake with roads and railways littered with debris. In some parts of the country, the wind reached an astonishing speed of 130 km/h, putting old trees to the ground as they were sticks. Watch this clip captured on a road in NRW, West-Germany, where the wind managed to lay down tree after tree, blocking one of the main roads in the area. Luckily, no one got hurt this time. This kind of storms are very unusual for this part of Europe, this being the second this month, that clears through the area, leaving a lot a damage and chaos behind.

A Thermometer Just Broke At -62°C (-80°F) In The World’s Coldest Village, And The Photos Are Breathtaking

Temperatures in the Siberian region of Yakutia (Yakutsk) have dropped to minus 80 degrees Frahrenheit, causing people's eyelashes to freeze. Check out this fish market during minus 49 degree weather! Unreal! Don’t wanna go to school because it is too cold outside? In the village of Oymyakon, the students are expected to attend classes until temperatures hit - 62 Fahrenheit! Can you imagine the cold? Oymyakon is considered to be the coldest permanently inhabited settlement in the world, where the temperatures have just hit to a record -80 Fahrenheit. Yay, no school! So don’t complain about how cold it is, because it is not THAT cold. To give you a graphic representation as to just how cold it was, people’s eyelashes would start to freeze together into icicles! The official weather station at the ‘pole of cold’ registered -74 degrees F, but the new electronic thermometer claimed the weather was -80 degrees, right before it broke down! Still, some locals say that the temperatures have gone beyond that, reaching to a -90! It is so cold outside, that the entire market is the frozen goods aisle! Because the soil is terrible for growing plants, the locals feed on fish and meat alone. That is the only thing they sell at the market, frozen solid fish in the form of popsicles that people bring home and cook until it is thawed. It is the world’s coldest village.

Massive Snow Storm Completely Covers Russian City

Now this is definitely something you don't see every day. Check out this amazing footage as user 'vladimir1991' managed to capture a snow storm completely covering the city of Krasnoyarsk, Russia. We have a great view of this massive storm approaching, it is frightening, but also interesting at the same time! These people from Russia are not phased at all by the massive snow storm coming their way. They look like they are very much used to these occurrences. With temperatures reaching as low as -15 Celsius, which is 5 degrees Fahrenheit, and spring warmth arriving as late as the second half of April (can you imagine that?), it is a safe bet to say that this is a normal sight for the people in Krasnoyarsk. However, watching the massive cloud of frozen water vapor, snowflakes and sleet approach the men on the pier, like a torrent out of a Hollywood disaster movie, really makes you thank Mother Nature for letting you live where you do and not in freezing Russia! At least they get to witness a very cool sight! It is quite intimidating watching the storm slowly creep its way closer to the people. You don't want to get stuck in that snow storm! Have you ever seen a storm as eerie looking as this? Let us know in the comment section down below!

Ice storm catches British Columbia city by surprise49s

Ice storm catches British Columbia city by surprise

December 28, 2017 was the start a tough couple days for Abbotsford in British Columbia, Canada. The Greater Vancouver city was hit hard by an unexpected ice storm the evening of the 28th. Although the local weather has been near or just below the freezing mark, the last couple days have been slightly warmer, hovering around zero. Tens of thousands of local residents were without power the following day, Friday, and roads were treacherous. This footage recorded by Dave Johnson shows the damage done to trees and power poles near his home. More than 41,000 BC hydro customers were in the dark Friday after freezing rain coated much of Abbotsford and other nearby towns in a layer of ice. Police and fire departments were urging residents to stay inside and not drive unless absolutely necessary. What a mess Mother Nature dealt out this week!

Strong Wind Gusts In Poland Create This Amazing 'Snownado'11s

Strong Wind Gusts In Poland Create This Amazing 'Snownado'

Is there anything more beautiful than nature? One look out of our window is all it takes to see something that is astonishingly stunning in its everyday state, like a field of flowers on a sunny day or a crystalline icicle. Even weather phenomenons, like a lightning storm or the glimmer of a frost can be breathtaking. But every so often something incredibly rare happens, that makes us wonder - what other incredible powers does Mother Nature have? Michał Bielaś caught one such event while at Tatrzański Park Narodowy in Poland. The video shows a gorgeous hilly landscape covered in a blanket of snow and heavily inhibited by what look to be tall dark green pine trees. As stunning of a scene as it is, is it the snow tornado that Michał is following with his camera that is truly magnificent. The wind tunnel spins in an expanding helix at a shockingly fast speed, lifting with it thin layers of the loose powder. It almost looks like a column of smoke billowing out of a chimney, save for the fact that it moves quickly down a small hill before evaporating into a dusty cloud. Let your little kid see this clip and we know exactly what they are going to say! Little mouth will exhale “It’s Elsa!”, followed by a neverending kiddy cannon of "Let It Go", a few lines of what they could understand, mixed with some mumbo jumbo of the parts they didn’t quite catch. Folks, this is what winter wonderland dreams are made of, and we can’t imagine a more perfect place to visit during the holiday season. It seems like Michał got to witness a true holiday miracle. Oh, how we envy him.

Tornado Hits Family Home While Kids Film Their First Video

Watch as a tornado hits the back of this house in Wardsville, MO while Mason and Mia record their very first video on May 19th, 2017. It's an incredibly scary moment, but the family managed to find shelter - although the back of the home's roof and deck did suffer damage. Saturday May 20 was cleanup day in Wardsville. A small tornado packing 100-miles-per-hour winds tore out roofs and trees early the previous evening. There were tree and other damages in some parts of the town, while other parts saw heavy damage to trees and structures from Friday’s heavy storm. One home sustained significant roof damage, another sustained minor roof damage, and two large trees fell on a third home. Trees were damaged, some of which were snapped or uprooted. The Tornado outbreak sequence of May 15–20, 2017 was a prolonged period of tornado activity that affected the Great Plains, Great Lakes, and Ohio Valley during mid to late May 2017. This outbreak sequence was the most prolific tornado event of 2017 in terms of number of tornadoes. It is also notable for producing the longest-tracked tornado in Wisconsin state history. The outbreak sequence resulted in two deaths and several injuries. If you do find yourself facing a tornado storm, look for the lowest possible level of your house or try to put as many walls between yourself and the storm as possible and stay inside until it is safe.
