A hint

The video is in Japanese, but don't worry - you'll get the message.

A note, however: the phenomenon is NOT a tornado.

Yeah, there was no storm, so "tornado" is not really a good word for it.

Interesting. That's amazing how fast it blew up into a twister (or whatever one should call it).

These happened in Texas now and then; we called them "dust devils". They happen under certain conditions, and yes, they do form almost instantaneously. They also end (as you can see in the video) quite suddenly. The time in between is variable. They can last as long as half an hour sometimes(!).

That one was one of the strongest ones I've ever seen. But dust devils never even get close to tornadoes, as far as strength goes.

Cool video, Mel. I remember seeing a much smaller one on the playground at school once when I was little. Like in the video, it was a cloudless, sunny day, yet this whirlwind just developed out of nowhere and was picking up dirt from everywhere. Really cool.

Most dust devils are just big enough for little boys to play in. \:\)
