Weather experts at Bay News 9 in St. Petersburg really want you to know this photo is fake.
“It is a Photoshopped picture of a supercell thunderstorm that seems to pop up with a new foreground every time there is a hurricane threat anywhere,” Bay News 9 Meteorologist Josh Linker said.
“I’ve seen versions of that photo since at least 2005,” Bay News 9 Meteorologist Brian McClure added.
Indeed, BuzzFeed FWD’s Reyhan Harmanci traced the path of the fake photo, all the way back to its totally not-Isaac origin.
Now we’ve spotted the fake cloud trying to sneak its way onto other modern disasters:
