Storms are created when a center of low pressure develops and a system of high pressure surrounds it. This combination of opposing forces can create winds and as a result of this, a storm of clouds is formed. This usually happens near water surfaces, such as seas, oceans etc.

Magilligan Point is a peninsula that is located in Northern Ireland, at the entrance to Lough Foyle. This short beach offers a walk through the National Nature Reserve which gives visitors opportunities to explore the beach or spot birdlife and sealife. It’s a calm astonishing place that looks just like the "Road to Avonlea". The moment you see this place, it immediately catches your attention.

But, not everything is as it seems. Even though Magilligan Point looks like an idyllic place, it still has it’s "dark side". When clouds come over, the water surface everything changes and it becomes one of the darkest and scariest places on Earth.

This video shows a storm cell crossing the water at Magilligan Point on May 3. Storm cells are an air mass that contains up and down drafts in convective loops and that move. It’s functioning as the smallest unit of a storm-producing system. They typically don’t produce severe weather and usually last for 20-30 minutes.

However, this place gives you the feeling that you are in the middle of the Bermuda Triangle and every moment the water surface can open and pull you inside of it. There is no sun, all you can see are the grey clouds and the rain.
