The winds from Storm Henry in Scotland were so strong on Tuesday they blew a waterfall UP.

Video shared on the Isle of Mull Cottages Facebook page shows the 90 mph winds slamming into the cliffs and forcing the waterfall to blow backward.

The video was filmed on the south of the Isle of Mull by Reuben O'Connell, who runs the Isle of Mull Cottages.

"The headland is called 'The Wilderness' and that day the falls were really getting blown back, so I decided to film a little clip for our Facebook page," O'Connell told KING 5.

The video has been viewed more than 2 million times and shared more than 35,000 times.

Storm Henry packed winds of over 100 mph, It caused power outages and forced the closure of roads and rail service.

The Isle of Mull is the second-largest island in Scotland's Outer Hebrides.

"One of the great things about Mull is the beauty and drama of the landscape - even in stormy weather," said O'Donnell.

The Met Office, which provides information about storms, had issued an Amber National Severe Weather Warning for Storm Henry from Monday afternoon until Tuesday morning. Storm Henry closely followed Storm Gertrude, which also had winds of more than 100 mph.
