Possible 'Wet Microburst' Brings Rain to Western Kansas

A severe thunderstorm that rolled through western Kansas on July 17 produced stunning shafts of rainfall, video shows.

Evyan Smith posted a timelapse video to Twitter that shows columns of rain slowly falling and obscuring the sky near Scott City, Kansas.

Smith said he had “never seen anything like it.” Meterologists and weather enthusiasts said in the comments of the video that it showed a “wet microburst.” A wet microburst is a “localized column of sinking air within a thunderstorm” that is accompanied by rainfall and can sometimes cause damage due to high wind speeds, according to the National Weather Service.

The National Weather Service (NWS) has not confirmed a wet microburst in the area.
