A 'fire tornado' has been caught on camera in the Brazilian municipality of Aracatuba, caused by strong, dry winds that fanned wildfires.
A whirlwind of flames spiralling several metres high danced across fields, bringing traffic to a halt on a nearby road, before it disappeared.
The phenomenon followed weeks of drought which have sparked brush fires across the country.
I mean fire tornadoes seem pretty cool and all, but you know what would be even cooler? Fire taquitos. BOOM -- an hour later I'm making my own fire tornadoes to battle Poseidon's toilet-bowl whirlpools. Who will win? Not whoever has to use the bathroom next, that's for sure! Because they're definitely losing. Brain cells, motor skills, you name it.
Hit the jump for a short video of the apocalypse in action.
Thanks to Sean, Bulldog Balls, shree, Erika and jop, who heard this thing tore through Munchkin land and didn't leave a single survivor. Oh God no -- not the Lollypop Guild!
