Tornados are already pretty scary, but when a 100-foot twister touches down, that is just terrifying. Villagers in Brazil were stunned to see the massive whirlwind tear across farmland and seemed to be impossibly high. Fortunately, nobody was injured, but that doesn't change the fact that this would be quite an intimidating sight to see.

Then, one man in New Jersey was filming the rainstorm outside when he got quite the jolt. Or, more accurately, the tree in his yard got a jolt. A bolt of lighting just happened to hit the tree as he was filming. Not only did he jump back, but so did we, and all we did was watch the video!
