The recent heat wave in Fairbanks, Alaska did not come without consequence. The lives of three interior men changed forever this past Saturday when they encountered one of the greatest terrors seen on earth: the Arctic Snow Tornado.
Reports are just in, but the identities of the three men remain unknown. They are completely safe and have not sustained any serious injuries. Rumor has it that there may be some actual footage of this natural disaster, but fairbanksirl is still working to obtain it.
The three men were reportedly grouse hunting in the Minto area when wind and snow levels started to become unmanageable. Suddenly there was a break in the storm which initially came as a relief. Unfortunately, the calmness ended when the eye of the storm disappeared.
The men have stated that visually, the snow tornado closely resembled a normal tornado; however it was the sound of the beast that was truly terrifying. Large chunks of ice shattered and clashed resulting in high pitched piercing noises. As trees and other debris collided, the three men were reminded of explosions and the sound of the ocean waves crashing during a storm. The snow tornado eventually moved off into the distance as the three men regrouped and returned to town as quickly as possible.
fairbanksirl will release more information and footage from the storm as soon as possible. There have been no addition sightings of the storm which meteorologists think has likely dissipated.
