A funnel cloud, described locally as a “mini tornado” swept across the Patzún countryside in Chimaltenango, Guatemala, on July 22, damaging at least 15 houses, according to a local news report.
A local, Juan Carlos Coy Chavajay, captured this video of a swirling funnel cloud cutting through fields of crops and tossing debris through the air and posted it to Instagram on that date.
As the funnel cloud seems to dissipate, a person is seen emerging from the crops and running for safety.
