An astonishing cloud tsunami rolled over high rises in Panama City, Florida. The pictures of the unusual weather phenomenon are stunning. Of course, JR Hott, the photographer who captured the stunning photos does not believe that "tsunami" is the correct term to describe the beautiful clouds.
He said, "I wouldn't call it a 'cloud tsunami.' The term tsunami implies a natural disaster. The event, while it can form quickly, moves gently and slowly. It isn't something that happens with more than a gentle breeze." Hott normally sees this phenomenon at least couple of times a year.
The pictures were actually fog rolling over the condos, and Hott was able to approach from the side, which allowed him to remain safely out of the fog. Can you believe he took the stunning set of photos in a mere five minutes? If "cloud tsunami" is not a good term to use, do you have another idea of something that would fit better? Either way, have you ever seen anything like this before?
