Caught on Camera: Poland Snow Devil

Caught on Camera Poland Snow Devil

POLAND, CBS News - A Polish man filmed a rare weather phenomenon know as snow devil at national park over the weekend.

A snow devil is a column of fine snow blown upward from a surface by the wind.

Krakow resident and mountain trekker Michal Bielas was on a tourist trail in the Tatra Mountains with his girlfriend when halfway down the trail the wind gradually started to pick up.

That's when he noticed the twisters forming and filmed the strongest one.

The whirling column of snow then dissolved when it encountered the forest.
