This is not a Hurricane

Posted by Kyle Brookings on Wednesday, February 7, 2018

There was an interesting cloud captured on satellite off the southern coast of California on Thursday.

It may look like a hurricane but in fact it is a von Karman vortex.

It is harmless, and common off the coast of southern California.

They are caused by significant elevation on Island that casues the formations. Clouds go arounf the island and forms on the opposite end.
