What the Hail? 10 Videos of Last Night’s Storm in Brooklyn

10/12/2010 8:57 AM |

Last night, in what seemed like no time at all, three quarters to one-and-a-half inches of rain and hail fell on parts of New York, especially, as per usual, in Brooklyn, causing bruises, a symphony of car alarms and severe flooding. Good thing Brooklynites all have iPhones, because now we have ten glorious Brooklyn hailstorm videos!

One incomprehensible YouTube clip that’s not included here makes up for shoddy cinematography with an excellent description of the storm: “It’s hailing on yo windows it’s smacking you on the face so you better hide yo kids…” Seriously. (Gothamist, BrooklynHeightsBlog, Brownstoner)
