A large and damaging gustnado touched down in Samutprakan province, Thailand, on October 5, 2019.

The event was captured on a video, with terrified people running away as the winds swirl through a gas station.

Cars were left damage and debris were swept away by the powerful twister.

According to reports, one witness at a gas station said he noticed the gustnado forming from dust and sand on the ground prior to becoming a massive twister.

The footage was captured by Ruthairat Hongtap, who said she has not seen anything like it before.

A gustnado is a short-lived, ground-based twister that can form on the edge of an extreme thunderstorm. The name comes from "gust front of a tornado", but is not officially considered to be one. Gustnadoes form in a different way an official tornado does.
