"I'm looking out the window. Here we have a landing on a Gremyachka. The smoke is impossible. This is the pollen. There was no wind, it was quiet. It pulled me to Lugansk. Darkness. Not like fog or something, but some kind of impossible blackness. The cloud was dark, dark, and then the brown whirlwind lifted up. Right here, right off the asphalt. And walked. The wind blew her away. I grabbed the kids, I say, let's go."

The wind

Wind — flow of air, which quickly moves parallel to the earth's surface.

Wind is the result of uneven distribution of atmospheric pressure and is directed from areas of high pressure to the low pressure zone. Due to the continuous pressure changes in time and space speed and wind direction are constantly changing. With height wind speed varies with the decrease of the friction force.

Winds can affect the formation of the relief, causing Eolian deposits that form different kinds of soils (e.g., loess) or erosion.

Смерч (вихрь, торнадо)

Atmospheric vortex that occurs in cumulonimbus (thunderstorm) cloud and propagating down, often to the surface of the earth, in the form of a cloud sleeves or trunk diameter of tens to hundreds of meters. Tornadoes can appear in many shapes and sizes.
