Some call these rare happening ‘rain bombs’ while the technical terminology is ‘microburst’. Microburst’s happen when dry air rises and mixes with heavy rain-bearing clouds. Most of the water droplets in the clouds evaporate, causing a swift cooling of the air around them. This event causes air to fall rapidly, pulling the remaining raindrops with it, creating one hell of a rain bomb.

Check out the photo’s and video below because it is wild!

This was captured in Queensland, Australia, by farmer Peter Thompson
