A thread for weather extremes that don’t normally get reported

I thought it might be interesting to have a thread where people can post weather extremes from other countries that might appear on their news feeds but are not generally reported on.

Craziest waterspout I have ever seen. A lot of shear going on above it.

Translated from Spanish by Microsoft
This was the transit of the giant iceberg on the coast near the Innaarsuit village in Greenland several days ago. The authorities feared the possibility of a tsunami if the iceberg was broken: fortunately it remained intact.

I had no idea about the tsunami until I got home, so now I realise that the tsunamis had washed away all the warm water from my local beach!

We were lucky it happened in the early morning so no children were on the beach.
