We don’t see something like this every day. A toxic tornado consisting of Sulfur Dioxide (SO2,) emitted from the large volcanic eruption occurring at Bardarbunga Volcano in Iceland.

The erupting magma (lava) is producing its own weather, clouds, and now the superheated air is producing superheated tornadoes like one would see in a large forest fire.


This video comes from Nicarnica Aviation, a manufacturer of infrared , and thermal camera components.

The tornado formed on September 3, 2014 – temperatures topping out above 600 degrees Fahrenheit.

Quote livescience:

“The toxic tornadoes were spotted in a poisonous cloud of sulfur dioxide gas spewing from Iceland’s Holuhraun lava flow on Sept. 3. One narrow, swirling column stretched 3,300 feet (about 1 kilometer) into the air. A remotely monitored infrared camera caught the dramatic whirlwinds on video. “

“We haven’t seen anything like this before,” said Fred Prata, chief technology officer at Nicarnica Aviation in Kjeller, Norway, the inventor of the infrared camera used for the images. “I was quite surprised to see it.”
