Rapidly intensifying Great Lake storm undergoes bombogenesis: Giant waves, wind damages on Lake Superior (video)

Bombogenesis occurs when a storm strenghtens really, really fast, dropping at least 24 millibars over 24 hours.

Such a rapidly intensifying area of low pressure engulfed the Great Lakes on October 24, 2017, bringing sustained powerful wind to parts of Michigan.

To be classified as a weather bomb, the central pressure of a low pressure system must drop at least 24 millibars within 24 hours. The great lake stomr lost 27 millibars in 24 hours. via Weather Channel

Look at the amazing waves along the coast of Lake Superior in Marquette, Michigan as the anomalous storm hit:

Lake Superior is throwing plenty of rocks on this Marquette’s park:

There was basically a hurricane force storm along Lake Superior. Waves were crashing so hard people could feel it in the rocks they stood on:

Wind gusts over 60 mph downed trees and knocked out power in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

The formation of this rapidly strengthening weather system is a process called bombogenesis, which creates what is known as a bomb storm. October and November are prime months for these Great Lakes wind storms.

  1. I live in this area…..just a couple of miles from Superior. First off, why doesn’t the video play ? all we get is a black screen and some ? French language ?
    The winds were a bit unusual to the high side. We do get this regularly thru the winter with storms most will not believe. 5 feet of snow drifts are common on the roads. At times we have to plow our own roads as the county trucks are covering a large area and smaller side roads may not get plowed for days.
    Yep, a lot of trees went down. Some Helicopter rescues did take place……because of stupid people !
    After the “big storm”, winds died down to normal. in the morning we awoke to everything covered in snow and sunshine. totally normal winter weather. this one came out of no where. or did it ?
    anyone ever look up a small thing called “Weather Wars” ? try it some time. You may just happen to learn something that is real and labeled by the wanna-be news outlets as, well we wont go there. Vomit brokers is the best I can come up with. Smoke and mirrors, that is what you get with the tube for news.
    Yep….I am probably one of what is called a “conspiracy nut”…..however, when the shoe fits…….

    • Hi,

      I don’t know why the videos are not playing. All play on my side, without this funny ‘french taste’ reported to me for the second time now. The videos were recorded in Marquette. If you want to see them on Twitter, just type marquette in the Twitter search bar. Sorry for that!

  2. I started humming the Edmund Fitzgerald. Born and raised in Michigan (was transferred out to AZ about 12 years ago), and always fascinated by the tremendous storms that hit the Great Lakes (especially Superior). Stay safe all my UP friends.

  3. Not that unusual for Lake Superior. Use to live in Wisconsin and every summer we’d spend a week up there boating around. Gorgeous area but that Lake can get as nasty as the ocean in a tropical storm when it wants to.

  4. This was not a usual or typical or any other type of storm….it was extremely strange in intensity, rapidity of developing, and the constant wind vs variable speeds typically seen. This was weather war…absolutely. i was driving north from MPLS and literally saw the HAARP signature throughout the clouds….I believe that the towers were being used to direct the wind and keep it moving in a direction we typically do not experience at all where I live.
    This man made deep freeze weather came out of nowhere…constant gale force winds, cold as a well digger’s ass. prior to the winds it was sunny, nice fall warm day, and calm.
    Friggin bastard assholes doing this crap should be shot.

  5. Are these storms being –GEO-ENGINEERED and make damage to stop Trump from succeeding on his agenda plan—– I know it sound crazy.??? But those damn hurricanes were and the weather channel was able to prove it. It wasn’t some freaky storms , but man made.!!
