Apocalyptic cloud haunts Brazilian town (PHOTOS, VIDEO)
Residents of a Brazilian town were stunned by the appearance of a strange, menacing-looking cloud Thursday evening, leading some to wonder if it spelled the beginning of something far more sinister.
At first look the obscure cloud resembles a meteorite trail or tornado, frozen in time, seconds before the impending doom. At second glance,it looks more like a freaky cloud formation.
João Paulo Magalhães captured the cloud in all its glory at 5pm in the city of Teixeira de Freitas, in the extreme south of the Brazilian state of Bahia.
Magalhães said while the “very unusual” cloud remained only about four minutes, people were worried it would form a tornado.
“It really looked like the entrance to a meteorite or something,” he said.
Other residents posted pictures of the freaky phenomenon, some calling it the “work of God”.
