‘Tsunami from Heaven’ captured in amazing video

Pete Maier set up a camera overlooking Lake Millstatt in Carinthia, Austria, and captured amazing footage of what he called a “Tsunami from Heaven.”

It was a microburst that dumped a heavy amount of rain from a storm cell in a small area as it moved over the glacial lake in the Central Eastern Alps.

Maier did a time-lapse video showing the incredible phenomenon, defined as an intense small-scale downdraft produced by thunderstorms or rain showers. A microburst is a downburst that covers 2.5 miles or less, which appears to be the case here.

One commenter on YouTube called it “the best shots [of a microburst] you can probably find on the net.”

As for the accompanying music, we’ll withhold comment.
