Thanks for sharing, and those are some beautiful pictures.
It's frightning when visibilty is slim to none, especially when your in an elevated area, and either to your left or right, is a huge drop..

You can see the location of the beach from here: Google Maps at the middle of the map (see the Hietaniemi location pointer).

From the looks of the video it was filmed mostly facing south/southwest and if you zoom out the map you'll see that the stormfront came in from the south over the gulf of Finland.

We've been having some freaky weather over here in Finland laterly, record-breaking average temperaturs and all-time high temperatures.

This type of storm actually visited Maine about a week ago. Caused a bunch of tornadoes to pop up.

I watched both videos. The video on the Finnish site has more detail, you can clearly see the birds fleeing. I have never seen a storm front this black or moving this fast EVER. It looked supernatural. Just creepy!

It seems a bit on the H.A.A.R.Pish side of things. Weather is getting out of control and not because of the so called global warming. Does any one remember last year I think when Russia stopped the jet stream and it cause the temperature in Washington to go way up for the day until they turned it back on? We have scientist out there messing with things they shouldn't be. And its no secret there's government documents you can look up.

I also witnessed this storm while driving to Helsinki. It was very awesome: first colors started to shade in to red, then it became as dark as night. And the lightning, it sure felt like God is a DJ and is playing IDM.

This summer has been quite strange in many weather aspects here in Finland. Hottest in recorded history and massive storms not like ever before. And the weird thing is that last winter was like coldest in years and there are STILL some snow left in dumpsite where snow was being carried from roads.

My personal opinion is that something strange is going around, but at the moment all we can do is wait and see.

Damn nature, you scary

The bird's are on the beach to the right near the fence in the backround. The video show's instant metamorphic attributes at [60s into the video] which leads me to believe this is a storm front of High pressure meeting Low pressure, Or vise versa.
I've seen this type of formation out in Kansas without Tornado production.

amazing - very surreal.

So much amazing weather going on right now all across the globe - interesting (and sad) times ahead for all.

Having lived almost exclusiely in "Tornado Alley" for my time in the US I can say I have seen this before.

I believe this is a wall-cloud...I wish I made a video of what I saw, it was like a massive black wave in the sky that came with torrential rainfall.

In Finland we have had hottest summer ever. Record temperature is now 37,2 celsius (29. July 2010). Also lots of rain, lightning, thunderstorms..

but if you look at the edges of the trees looks like someone replaced the real background ...maybe a good sfx..

change her face

Have we confirmed that this is real? It seems fake to me. I'll point out that I only watched video; I'm unwell today and don't have the energy to read through four pages of posts, so sorry if this is redundant. To start with, why is the camera pointed that way? And what kind of camera is it? It moves strangely, in a way that suggests it's operated remotely - it just seems like a lot of luck that the storm gathers right in front of the camera.

Second, the first girl to get up and run seems very fake to me. From just one viewing, I don't even see her look behind her at the clouds before she decides to run away, pointing at it, like some 50s sci fi B-movie.

Third, how come there are so few people on the beach? I don't know anything about the beach, so perhaps that is normal, but it's a lot easier to fake something with only a handful of people.

Fourth, how come the birds take off so late? I was under the impression that birds could sense incoming storms and got the hell out of the way before there are any visible signs. I may be wrong.

Last, ther trees do not appear to move. The clouds seem to be very low and move rather fast, and yet there's no wind at ground level? That seems odd too.

Fake or real, it's impressive. Moreso if it's real, of course. Sneaky nature.

EDIT: She did look behind her - still looks fake though, the way she runs away. Overall, despite my comments, I could easily believe that it's real.

Big Deal................I guess you have never been to the plains when a storm is coming in.

I guess it was being filmed because it was taken on a beach - people often have cameras on a beach, not to mention mobile phones with cameras.

I don't see anything unusual in that at all - hundreds of videos and photos are put on the web daily from people who saw something and filmed it.

It was really bad. I don't ever remember seeing storms this bad in my lifetime. Huge amounts of homes are still out of power and people were seriously injured by the downwinds.
I just hate it that I wasn't there. I'm bit further up north and we caught the strom too but I didn't even notice it untill a lightning struck the ground near my home and the electricity went out

[Edit to add] To people who claim fake, it wasn't. It was like doomsday out there.

NOW I know how it feels when you have experienced something for sure and people rush yelling "FAKE!". And it feels funny as people are also gathering "evidences" why it's fake when it is not
Imagination seems to work in both ways....

See storms like this once every 2 months. Not so impressed really.

Sandstorms are the only thing that impress me. Or fishes falling from the skies....
