Although it was hardly the catastrophic event as the fire tornado that occurred in the City of Redding earlier this summer, it was still quite harrowing.


British Columbia firefighter M.C. Schidlowsky posted a scary video to her Instagram page showing a firenado sucking up her teams firehose and melting it.





Michael Gollner with the University of Maryland's Department of Fire Protection Engineering, said:

It's a classic fire whirl. It's very common for smaller whirls to occur in fires. They're more akin to dust devils. There was clearly a lot of momentum to have that much suction and pull. There was quite a bit of weight it was pulling up.

I've never seen a hose sucked up into a fire whirl before.


Folks on Twitter empathized with the firefighters frustration. .





Can't say we really blame the guy. We might throw a rock too is a fire monster stole our hose.





Now why didn't the firefighters think of this?


Just a short while ago this is what we were all asking.


Now it seems to be the norm.


Just a sign of the time we suppose.

TRIGGER WARNING: This article contains sensitive content about depression and mental health.

As the stigma around mental health lessens (however slowly), people are more forthcoming about the problems they are facing. One of the most common mental health issues is depression.

Depression can affect many different types of people. Factors such as gender, race, nationality, and even age have no bearing on whether someone suffers from depression or not.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), globally, "...an estimated 3.8% of the population affected, including 5.0% among adults and 5.7% among adults older than 60 years..."

Depression displays in certain patterns, such as mood changes, physical difficulties, and social isolation. However, depression manifests differently in different people and feels different to different people.

Reddit users divulged what depression felt like to them when Redditor iodineseaspray asked:

"What does depression feel like to you?"

Some of this is sure to sound familiar.
