Weather of Arabia - Sinan Khalaf - Tweeters shared a video clip on social media showing the moment a terrifying fire tornado formed in one of the northern regions of Australia during the past days, coinciding with the wave of fires that have been ravaging the country for days.
A fire tornado is a large whirlwind of flame that occurs when the movement of the wind in the form of swirls combines with the presence of flames on the ground, so that a fiery vortex is formed that is frightening in its shape and movement, to the point that many call this phenomenon Fire Devils.
