Fun with Meteorology

Called Morning Glory clouds.

They're natural cloud formations, as far as anyone knows. Obama didn't make them with his great powers.

...they appear every fall [that's 'autumn' to us anglos] over Burketown, Queensland, Australia, a remote town with fewer than 200 residents. A small number of pilots and tourists travel there each year in hopes of “cloud surfing” with the mysterious phenomenon.

Similar tubular shaped clouds called roll clouds appear in various places around the globe. But nobody has yet figured out what causes the Morning Glory clouds

Not at all a harbinger of anything.
