Unusual Landspout Surprises Beachgoers in Canada Town


An unusual weather phenomenon that transpired last week in Saskatchewan, Canada, surprised beachgoers.

A landspout, according to the NOAA Severe Storms Laboratory, is a tornado with a short, rope-like condensation funnel that arises while the thunderstorm cloud is still forming and there is no rotating updraft – the spinning motion begins at ground level.
On the other hand, a tornado is an air column with a tiny diameter that forms inside a convective cloud and makes contact with the earth.

What can be seen in the video was an uncontrollable landspout tornado touching down in the town of Watrous. Currently, the video is going viral, shared by a user Douglas Thomas on Twitter.

On the beach where the video was shot, a woman in the background screamed, “Oh my goodness! It’s a tornado.” The other man encourages them to go before they could get caught in danger.

As the storm gets worse, beachgoers start to get ready to escape as soon as possible, as shown in the video.

One user asked Douglas Thomas if any damages happened during the incident, and he answered, “Lots of dust and some hail. [I] do not know anything else.”

The post is accumulating 620 thousand views as of now. Twitter users showed concern regarding what happened, and some asked what kind of weather phenomenon was in the video.
A time-lapse video of a storm chaser, Jenny Hagan, had also gone viral on the internet, capturing a massive supercell thunderstorm over farmland. It happened in Southwest Saskatchewan, Canada.
A supercell thunderstorm has a long-lasting, deep spinning updraft. Supercells are the leading cause of most extreme weather conditions, especially tornadoes, despite their rarity.
