Lynchburg Softball Dirt Tornado

The softball team at Lynchburg College in Virginia experienced a brief but unforgettable weather delay during its game against Bridgewater.

Check out this scene that seems like something out of a science-fiction movie:

According to WDBJ meteorologist Brent Watts, this wasn't technically a tornado: "To get a dust devil, you'll typically need a warm day, with light to calm winds, and low humidity. Unlike a tornado, dust devils are not connected to a cloud."

The delay occurred in the top of the second inning. Lynchburg scored five runs in the bottom of the second and won 9-1.
