Gale-Force Winds Blow Water Back up Waterfall

The wind is so strong in Scotland that water is getting blown back up waterfalls, seemingly against the laws of gravity.

Footage shared by a cottage rental firm based in Mull, Scotland shows 90 mile per hour winds stopping a waterfall on the Isle of Mull dead in its tracks earlier this week.

The extraordinary winds are a product of Storm Henry, the latest windstorm of the season, which has prompted severe weather warnings and caused thousands of power outages this week.

While Henry's waterfall-stopping powers were certainly impressive, the strongest recorded wind of the UK/Ireland windstorm season so far occurred on January 29, when Storm Gertrude produced a blustery gust that reached speeds of 105 miles per hour.
