Nature is disastrous at times and some of its examples include hurricanes, tornadoes, tsunamis, cyclones and earthquakes.
Different weather patterns are solely responsible for unusual events in the nature. When the conditions are right, we may also see an amazing phenomenon, but whenever there is a strange weather pattern usually called a "Rain Bomb," it becomes so scary! You would love to watch it from a distance but getting caught in one is just like a nightmare.
A person captured nature's fury which looks so alarming! Have a look:
This kind of natural occurances are beautiful and destructive at the same time. It is known as a Rain Bomb. No one would ever like to get caught in one of these!
When a cooled and heavy column of air sinks abruptly in the midst of the storm, then this phenomenon takes place. Rain Bomb is sometimes also referred to as Micro-Burst. During this, the water droplets are pulled down with the dreadful force.
The air is pushed outwards in a curling motion as soon as it reaches the ground. This causes winds to move with the excess velocity of 150 mph and also crushes the torrents of rain with it.
This natural phenomenon looks like a bomb from a distance. Also, these microbursts can be called as the Upside-Down Tornadoes.
Micro-bursts of two types have been identified. One is a wet microburst, and another is a dry microburst. During a dry micro-burst there is no moisture in the air, just wind whereas a wet micro-burst consists of moisture and air droplets are pulled down.
It is really very difficult to capture them as they disappear within a fraction of second. But by chance, this storm chaser in Arizona got captured!
