Snownado filmed swirling amid Chicago snowstorm

Feb. 12 (UPI) — A snowstorm brought more than just 7 inches of snow to Chicago — it caused a rare snownado caught on camera by a local woman.

Amber Connor captured video Friday of the snownado, a winter whirlwind also known as a snow devil, swirling at the side of a Chicago road.

The video shows the mini tornado spinning snow through the air next to a line of parked cars.

The footage was filmed amid a snowstorm that dropped more than 7 inches of snow on the area.
