A terrifying wall of cloud has been caught on camera ominously rolling towards the shore in Michigan. It may have resembled an apocalyptic scene or a tsunami, but meteorologists believe the unusual spectacle was actually a ‘shelf cloud’.

So we just experienced the craziest thing ever. It was a sweltering 85 and muggy up here and the tide pulled out about 30 feet.
In the distance it looked like a huge wave heading towards us so we decided to watch it come in.
We didn’t get any rain but the wind was so strong when it hit shore you could hardly breath.
It lasted only about 10 minutes but I’m happy to report it’s a very comfortable 65 degrees out now!
That was indeed mind-blowing!
