Residents captured the surprising moments when a gustnado was seen in Samutprakan province, Thailand on October 5. The gustnado lifted roofs and signs, causing damages to several homes and cars nearby, and was followed by a heavy downpour, according to Thai PBS. One witness at a gas station said he first saw the gustnado forming from dust and sand on the ground, before it became a swirling wind traveling towards him.

Another witness who filmed the whirlwind from the other side of the gas station said she had not seen anything like it before. The gustnado is a swirling wind caused by storm clouds.
