“Firenado” Over Bourbon-filled Kentucky Pond

This happened in 2003, but the unlikely confluence of events and a video of it are something special. The Weather Channel has the footage.

First, lightning struck a Jim Beam storage facility. The resulting fire led to a bourbon spill, and 800,000 gallons of the whiskey spilled into a retention lake and burned. The storm wasn’t over, though, and a small tornado swept the flames up into a “firenado,” or a whirlwind of fire. It’s a rare occurrence,and even rarer to catch one on video. A spill of that much bourbon -well, that’s just tragic. -via Fark
