Nature is often simultaneously beautiful and terrifying. A man in Dviete, Latvia recorded a whirlpool that looked as if someone had pulled the plug on the river floor. His video is embedded below, and although the whirlpool isn’t incredibly large, it showcases an extremely powerful force. Ice and debris don’t stand a chance as they all get sucked into the vortex. At one point a giant sheet of ice and mud cover the whirlpool, and it seems like the pool will fade away. Instead, the mass of ice and land shatters and gets sucked down into the water. Incredible!
