I live in central Canada, and I've seen that happen. Only the clouds were blacker, there was a silver lining with a blood red rim around them....I'm not joking or exaggerating at all. And there was a murder of crows going snaky.

Apparently, the blood red rimmed black glowing clouds wasn't enough ambiance.

Amazing stuff. Cool video.

We've been getting quite intense storms like that recently, Sunday -> Monday night had a crazy storm moving over my house, lighting struck really close, sounded like a gunshot.

It's raining right now and the weather is really unstable. Otherwise it's been the hottest summer in almost 100 years, around 30C many days. Strange summer, with a lot of cool stuff happening.

Yes this was in Helsinki, Finland..

We watched it from a 4th story balcony until the rain started pouring sideways and we had to abandon our position.. We were a bit baked at the time
.

I think the reason ppl just stood there, is that this sort of phenomenon rarely happens over here.. I've certainly never seen anything like that..

Here's something about it in english:

YEE HAWWW !!! I used to live out in Az too, and you are right. But I have seen other storms elsewhere just as bad, and some even worse. Atmospheric pressures and temperatures can really create some interesting clouds. This one is not that unusual though. Good video, but the videographer is too close for comfort. I remember those purple and green colored storm roll clouds.
But I will never forget the crystal clear evening of March 13th, 1997 when I was flying from Prescott to Phoenix with a patient, and crew onboard my aircraft. That is when my beliefs were firmed regarding the UFO stories. Wow !

That was awesome, that footage could easily be an intro for a movie of some foreboding event.

The birds were clearly the smartest species in this film. But I've seen similar storms in illinois, but its been a 16yrs since I was raised there. Nature is truly an awesome force to reckon with.

To bjsmi2. Think a little before you post, son. Those nice folk in Finland aren't used to this kind of weather. Have you seen what's going on in Moscow. They aren't used to it either. Take a pill.

Thanks for everyone's reply. Glad most of you liked it.

I've never seen, or have had a first hand experience in seeing a storm like this ever. I guess you can see why I was
.

Lets hope these won't be a regular kind of storm to start forming up.

All I could feel while watching this was 1) Awe, and 2) Jealousy. Lol. I love the rain. I wouldn't complain if it rained 365 days a year personally. I would LOVE to witness something like this first hand. The way storm systems move and form has always fascinated me. Whenever it rains, I can spend sometimes hours just sitting by the window and watching it fall.

What can I say? I'm odd that way lol. I would love to see something like this in person someday.

Wow. On my birthday? Kool. lol.

Two things I want to say here.

#1. I find it oddly coincidental that this is more or less close to where that spiral in the sky over Norway happened. Could that along with this storm have any connection?

#2. I had a weird dream one night that a storm (just like this one shown in the video) showed up over here where I live. (In Texas.)

that video looks to fake to be a real video. Just look at the HS.fi. You know kind of like how sci-fi channel you to have its logo.

you can now even fake weather storms via after effects.

BTW: Where's this face people are talking about. I looked and couldn't find it. (Then again maybe it's cause I'm sleepy right now.)

Thanks for posting the video and link. The storm looks impressive to me with it's fast approach. I have certainly seen worse storms but I haven't videotaped any of it. I remember one time I was watching a fast moving cloud. Over the course of less than 10 minutes it grew rather fast and then a tornado formed at the bottom of it. I actually watched the whole thing form. I could not see the tornado very well due to trees blocking my view. At one time I was at the center of a supercell tornado cluster that was spawning F5 tornadoes several miles away. Where I was at the lightning flashes were so constant it looked like a very bright strobe light much brighter than ordinary daylight had been turned on but it wasn't blinking. I no longer saw lightning flashes but constant bright light all around the house. My mistake was looking out of the window. I was temporarily blinded after seeing an intensely bright scene outside.

Nice video.

I saw where Russia had a high temperature around 99 degrees. It's been that hot and hotter for several weeks where I live. Fortunately we have air conditioning where I live at. I don't know if too many people have that in Russia. I have experienced temperatures of 180 degrees lasting for over a minute or two. It was about 105 degrees outside that day and I was walking through part of a factory that was a lot hotter than normal. I didn't realize how hot until I saw a thermometer. It was usually only about 120 to 140 degrees in that part of the factory.
I digress. Thanks for the video and thread.

Whoever wrote the headline for this story has a great imagination... no one appears to be panicing in this video. Quite the opposite... I hear people laughing and playing the whole time.

Good thing it wasn't a small Magnetron powered dark cloud.
Now that is outOsight.....or is it?

Since everyone is sharing their storm experiences I will share mine. It was kinda of similar but different. I had just gotten back from my honeymoon and decided my wife to visit Mt. Evans. If you live in Colorado or have been there you may know that it claims to be the mountains with the highest paved highway in North America. Anyway we had just passed Echo Lake, that is basically when you know you are going to the summit of the mountain. And this part of the trip is freaky if you're afraid of heights. You have a very narrow road that leads to the peak barely wide enough for two cars to pass each other, no guard rails, and twisty curves that you need to be going like 5 miles an hour on not to fall on the edge, and there are no guard rails. And the drop-off must be thousands of feet. I hate going up riding in the passenger-side because there are times you can look out the window and literally see nothing but space underneath you.

So I'm taking my wife to the summit thinking what a great day this will be, what a glorious wondrous day. Everything was so clear you could see everything seems like all the way to Wyoming from up here. So as we're going up the winding road a huge storm front moved in. I mean it was clear one second and these clouds just came in at must have been 100 miles an hour from behind the mountain. From one second to the next you were seeing a hundred miles away and then you couldn't even see the edge of the hood of your car. And I literally couldn't see the edge of my hood in front of me, and I know there are drop offs like inches to my right. It was pretty frightening. I know I was driving about 2 miles per hour until finally I found a spot where you could pull of the road, and I took it and told my wife we were not staying there or going all the way up so I turned the car around and slowly inched my way back down the summit road.

On my way down a motorcyler one of those tough looking guys wearing a leather jacket and all with huge mustache and beard and a woman comes riding down on us. I couldn't see him and he couldn't see me, but he must have been going like 30 miles an hour, I guess he had a death wish, anyway. I heard him honking at me and looked in the rear-view mirror he got close enough to see him at that point the visibility was a few more feet than before, I saw him about running into me and he veered to his right to miss my car and almost drove off the road. When he got his bearings, I'm guessing he was frightened out of his wits he passed me flipping me the bird and the woman that was with him and they were both just screaming profanities like you wouldn't believe at my wife and I. I just ignored them and kept on my way thinking that he was a nuthead for driving so fast in that weather. Anyway about a half a mile up ahead he had parked himself in the middle of the road and had gotten off his bike and was standing in the middle of the road obviously waiting for me. And I'm like, oh boy, and right then a park ranger drove up behind him with his sirens on. He didn't move and I drove around him and kept on down the mountain.

So that was my story. We eventually returned to Mount Evans about two years later.

BTW awesome video.
