The rolling cloud formation looked straight out of a disaster film
"My children and I had just walked outside to walk our dog and that's what we saw," she said.

"It happened so fast and was over in just a few minutes there was a thunderstorm afterwards but it was very mild.
"Just a little rain, lightning and thunder. Nothing crazy like you'd think."
Johanna said it lasted only a few minutes before giving way to a thunderstorm
A local weather channel said the formation was a 'ragged, shelf cloud'
Johanna insisted the pictures and video are "100% real"
Johanna said a local weather channel told her the phenomena was "a large, ragged shelf cloud" while the 'fingers' hanging down are called "fractious clouds".
She insisted the images are genuine.
"I can't believe so many people think it's fake!" Johanna added.
"I guess there's truly no way of proving it's really but 100% it's real."
