A video of water rising from the sea and reaching on top of a cliff is breaking the internet.

After walking along the cliff in the Faroe Islands, Samy Jacobsen came across this incredible view, reported Yahoo News. Faroe Islands consists of 18 major islands and it falls under the Kingdom of Denmark. Owing to the rugged terrain, the climate in Faroe Islands remains windy, wet, cloudy, and cool.

According to weather experts, the phenomenon occur when a rotating column of air forms like a tornado over the sea or other body of water and a cliff edge spins the wind in a circular motion.

As a result of this phenomenon a water spout, a whirling mass of fluid or air, is formed. Spouts generally occur in the tropics and subtropical areas.

Greg Dewhurst, senior operational meteorologist at the Met Office, talked of the phenomenon as “spectacular”, reported Daily Star.
