Strange 'Microburst' Weather Phenomenon Captured over Phoenix


If you saw this mushroom cloud looming over your city you might assume the worst. Luckily for the residents of Phoenix it was simply a weather pattern called a microburst.

Microbursts are a phenomenon that happens during strong thunderstorms. It an air current that moves in the opposite direction of a tornado. They don't last long (typically only a few minutes) but can produce winds strong enough to wipe out trees and debris.

Check out this video of a microburst in action.
