Extremely Strong Winds Cause a 80-Foot Waterfall to Blow Upwards
Earlier this week, hikers exploring England’s Derbyshire Peak District were in for quite a surprise. Extreme winds caused a rare phenomenon and forced the Kinder Downfall rapids to blow water upwards rather than flow downwards!
The River Kinder, a small waterway that’s only about three miles long, was stopped in its tracks as the powerful gust pushed the current back onto the Kinder Scout Plateau. Its normal course is to cascade the 80 feet of the Kinder Downfall; but clearly, the wind had other plans, and the waterfall appears to go nowhere.
It’s an incredible sight, and what’s also impressive is that travelers were able to withstand the winds long enough to capture it on video.
