MUST SEE: Strong winds cause waterfall to flow backwards

Thursday, October 18, 2018, 7:00 PM - The wind was so strong along Scotland's Isle of Skye last week, that it was prevented a waterfall from doing the one thing it's supposed to do.

The unnamed person who caught the event on camera told CNN the footage was captured during a storm at Talisker Beach on October 12.

"The wind was stopping the waterfall coming down, it was literally blowing the water away," the submitter told the news agency.

The storm was part of a system that brought wind gusts over 100 km/h to some places and was accompanied by heavy rain, which flooded close to 200 homes in Wales.

At least one man was killed when the heavy storm triggered a landslide in Wales Saturday.
