ABOUT THE ART
An extremely dangerous cloud, a wall cloud (or pedestal cloud) is a large, lowering cloud formation that develops beneath the base of a cumulonimbus cloud that often forms tornadoes. It is typically beneath the rain-free base (RFB) portion of a thunderstorm, and indicates the area of the strongest updraft within a storm. Wall clouds are sometimes an indication of a rotating mesocyclone in a thunderstorm, and most strong tornadoes form from wall clouds.
I was caught up in this terrifying storm (I guess that's because I chased it ) and suffered hail damage to my car, a very expensive photo!
