Panama City, FL - At first glance, it may appear as though tsunami is poised to crash over the Florida coastline.

But much to the relief of Panama City residents, this breath-taking series of photographs shows a natural phenomenon far less destructive - waves of clouds.

Helicopter pilot JR Hott captured these breathtaking images, which show the low-lying haze swooping over high-rise buildings down the coast.

KATU reports Mr Hott captured the images hovering over the Gulf of Mexico after one of his pilots came in from a flight.

Before his chopper could be engulfed by the heavy fog, Mr Hott flew up to capture the wave-like formations.

‘We jumped into helicopter and took off,’ he said. But he didn’t have long to descend. ‘Within a few minutes after we landed, it covered up the helipad,’ the seasoned pilot said.

According to Dr Greg Forbes, of Weather.com, the phenomenon occurred as a result of warm, moist air forming ‘just right’ as it blew into the coastline, forming a low-lying fog that dissipates as the air cools with altitude.
