What the heck was that?! Almost 2 inches of rain in 45 minutes. 50 mph winds. Small hail. Street flooding. Building flooding. Car accidents. Tons of lightning.
I’ve never seen anything like it before, and I had the joy of it happening while I was at the fire station. The department did 17 runs in 3 hours….we did our share of time in the rain. The photos are from the inside of the apparatus bays at the firehouse – in the #2 photo, that’s inside the bay….the line is the mark where the garage door comes down. The video is shot directly outside of the back of the station and is at normal speed (looks similar to a Weather Channel report from a hurricane).
