The footage shows a storm over Columbus, Ohio that suddenly dumps a big bucket of rain at once, a so-called microburst or rain bomb.
A microburst is a small downdraft that moves in a way opposite to a tornado. Microbursts are found in strong thunderstorms. There are two types of microbursts within a thunderstorm: wet microbursts and dry microbursts. They go through three stages in their cycle, the downburst, outburst, and cushion stages.
Although a microburst is a well known phenomenon you may wonder whether it is the result of weather modification techniques such as cloud seeding.
