Another country in turmoil,

What other countries are being affected that we don't know of ????

Perhaps the "Royal Wedding" is to divert media attention from what's really happening world over...

Thanks OP for sharing...S &F

Here's another example of a fire tornado. This one is in Brazil.

Here's another one:

Fire Whirl - Wikipedia

A fire whirl, colloquially fire devil or fire tornado, is a rarely captured phenomenon in which a fire, under certain conditions (depending on air temperature and currents), acquires a vertical vorticity and forms a whirl, or a tornado-like vertically oriented rotating column of air. Fire whirls may be whirlwinds separated from the flames, either within the burn area or outside it, or a vortex of flame, itself. An extreme example is the 1923 Great Kantō earthquake in Japan which ignited a large city-sized firestorm and produced a gigantic fire whirl that killed 38,000 in fifteen minutes in the Hifukusho-Ato region of Tokyo.[1] Another example is the numerous large fire whirls (some tornadic) that developed after lightning struck an oil storage facility near San Luis Obispo, California on April 7, 1926, several of which produced significant structural damage well away from the fire, killing two. Thousands of whirlwinds were produced by the four-day-long firestorm coincident with conditions that produced severe thunderstorms, in which the larger fire whirls carried debris 5 kilometers away.[2]

Title should read "Many fires in Mexico. Rare Fire Tornado filmed."

unless the entire country is on fire.

Anything for S&F. You won't get mine. The fire tornado was enough to get it but I can only support threads that do not remind me of a.jones

Its absolutely insane that mainstream media has been able to hide this for so long, think of all the crops damaged! On the other hand, that was one of the coolest things I've ever seen. Thanks for sharing.

The United States Air Force has been sending c-130s to mexico with fire retardant, however we now need these planes on the fires in Texas. I agree we protect our land before foreign soil.

I heard about it a few days ago on CNN. It was said that the US had sent some crews to help. Then there were the fires in Texas, tornados, the royal wedding etc. I haven't heard any more about it until now.

Vortexes over fires are common. Fires create their own weather as well. The immense heat interacting with the surrounding cool air creates the vortex, just like a Tornado, the principles are the same. In a house fire you can see the same thing, except on a very smaller scale.

And you the hear the people screaming? I would have too, a tornado alone is scary but but 1 filled with fire

I hope those fires can get under control, the map looked like half the country was burning...

So was it caused by a tornado starting over the brush fires or is this just something we really havent seen before?

Now I know why there was such a strong haze where I Sierra Vista
Those who said this is not even being talked about (whereas with the royal wedding is....A LOT) let me put it this way...leaving work today talking to my wife on the phone I was like " they weren't kidding when they said that strong winds would be picking up today (forecast-ed to be JUST as strong if not strong through the weekend)! Man it is a haze there is s much "DIRT" being kicked up!!"

Not even ONE person mentioned this at my work today, or hell all week even! 80% of my co-workers live in and around Sierra Vista/Huachuca City (pronounced WAA CHUKA) whereas I do the daily commute to and from Tucson daily.

As each day goes on, and with each new disaster that occurs, it is looking more and more like TPTB have "pulled the trigger" and possibly put what many had feared probably the most....depopulation. We have Earthquakes and Tsunamis to the left of us, extreme non-ending Tornados/Flooding to the right...and for those of us that do not live in either of those that are not prone, we get....yup FIRES! Yea this was MAN MADE alright. Pathetic bastages better hope that they do THIS citizen in because when it eventually pops off for real, I won't have no problem in....well best I just stop right there. Sad sad days we are living in...very troubling times indeed

If, and I pray that it is not, but should this worsen or still be continuing come Monday when I go back to work, I will take a bunch of pics and document what all I find out so that we can do our best to reach our own conclusions being that we cannot trust any mainstream media sources anymore. Damn shame. I pray for the entire world, for each and every one of you.

I see something like this, and I'm shocked it isn't in the news.
I remind myself that I can't trust the major news networks to tell me straight.
Another CRAZY news story hits ATS, (major earth changes!) and I start the process all over again...

Wow, how did you manage to turn a video of wildfires into a religious issue? Do you realize you were literally arguing with yourself? Some people live to be miserable. You are proof of that.

Ok so this is a first for me. A fire tornado. I know of water spouts and dust devils, but man this is crazy!. Now the next thing i'll be seeing is tornado's made of snow and hail.

Holy Moses Jones, it's a friggen TORNADO of FLAMES, Mother nature is badass. Think about that before you mess with Mother nature, That is all.

Hell, the Mexicans are already here and no one is left to put the fires out.
Was that really THAT difficult to figure out?

posted on Apr, 30 2011 @ 12:20 AM
Wow... can cook some food with that make it into a fiesta. Kidding aside, that's pretty scary!

From the effects of men? what effects lol.

This is because man has forgotten how to live as one with nature and is destroying the earth. The weapons created by the white man who has abused and misused the knowledge given to them.

Then with all the fighting going on and not finding a way to be at peace with one another is the cause of all this. If only the people would wise up and stand up against the governments worldwide then and only then will this stop. I'm not talking about all these so called spontaneous uprisings going on in the Middle East either as they are planned uprising all for a different goal than what the media wants you to think.

It's only going to get worse and those of you sitting in the USA in your quaint little world that think it's won't happen. You better think again because it's going to and you better get right with nature and ask your "GOD" for forgiveness!
