Monsterous Whirlpool Eats Everything

If you saw a giant hole opening up near you, what would you do? I think I’d run away, myself. But thankfully a few brave young men decided to stick around and film this whirlpool as it seemed to grow larger and even angrier as it began swallowing ice, clumps of earth, basically anything that came its way.

Turns out, this was actually a drainage tube running underneath an elevated road near the Daugava river. The river flooded and sent water up into the nearby fields, only to come rushing back through this drain in a way that really shows off the power of nature.
