Unusual Phenomenon in the Sky Over South Dakota
The people of South Dakota experienced moments of terror when the sky turned green above their heads. This was not, of course, the beginning of the apocalypse, but a harbinger of what the scientist called derechem. The network was flooded with reports of residents who immortalized the green sky in photos and videos.
Derecho is a vast storm that is moving extremely fast over the next regions. It is accompanied by an unusually strong wind, exceeding 100 km/h. In order to conclude that we were actually dealing with a doggie, it is necessary to assess the damage. And yes, the damage zone after passing it covers at least 460 km.
Damage caused by the wind during the presentation must be classified at 1F on the Fujita scale. Some people also refer to the doghouse as a windstorm or inland hurricane.
< strong> Where does the green sky come from
It is not entirely clear why the sky turns green before the appearance of the dogwood. Scientists suspect that this may be due to the droplets of water suspended in the air appear blue, but when a ray of the setting sun hits them, the reflection of color turns green.
As a storm passes over South Dakota as many as 30,000 people had to deal with the lack of electricity supply. Derecho has also passed through Iowa, Nebraska, Minenesota, and also Illinois.

Water/ice particles in storm cloud will primarily scatter blue light. When the reddish light scattered by the atmosphere illuminates the blue water/ice droplets in the cloud, they will appear to glow green https://t.co/HccL7tRrED
