Curious vortex whirlpool found in Latvia River

1841, Edgar Allen Poe referred to a maelstrom, or powerful whirlpool in
the ocean, as a “whole sea … lashed into ungovernable fury.” Now 172
years later, a YouTube video titled “Amazing monstrous whirlpool” gives
gravity to Poe’s words, though (likely) on a slightly smaller scale. Set
in Dviete, Latvia, near the banks of the Daugava River, the video
depicts a mysterious whirlpool churning — and destroying — all that
enters. Huge chunks of ice? Gone. Floating islands of debris?
Annihilated. “Swallowing everything dragged towards its direction,”
reads the description by Jānis Astičs, “this monstrous whirlpool looks
as if a plug has been pulled from the ground beneath.” Astičs isn’t too
far off in his analysis, actually. While most whirlpools in nature occur
as a result of fast moving currents meeting one another in opposite
directions (often caused by ocean tides), the phenomenon in the video
shares a lot in common with a draining bathtub. Indeed, a longer version
of the same video shows the mysterious “monstrous whirlpool” in Latvia
has been formed by water from the swollen river flowing into an inlet on
the upstream side of a bridge. All of the debris is funneled under the
road on which spectators are standing and flows downstream. According to
the European Federation for Rural Tourism, Latvia’s Dviete river
valley, where this video was filmed, is home to a massive wetland during
flooding season. The marsh serves as a critical area for birds, both
for nesting and migration. -HP
