'Hay devil' phenomenon captured on camera

7 posts in this topic

A man captured footage of a weather phenomenon known as a "hay devil" while in the countryside near his home.

Kevin Farndell was walking through some fields near Dummer, Hampshire, when he saw "straw quite high in the sky".

He added: "As I rounded the corner I could see this vortex of hay whizzing around."

Hay devils, sometimes referred to as dust devils, occur when the ground is hot and the rising warm air lifts up light debris.

I've never seen one before. I'm glad he got it on video.

I once read a horror story about dust devils. Never looked at them the same way again.

Really interesting, not a lot of hay fields where I live, mostly dirt.

Wonder when someone will claim its the work of aliens.
