Severe thunderstorms have pummeled Brooklyn all afternoon, turning the borough into a granola-filled version of Venice. Parts of it, at least. All three area airports were affected by the downpour, and at least six subway lines experienced delays. There were also reports of hail. Dramatic as it sounds, the intense storm and subsequent flooding didn’t deter intrepid camera-phone operators from applying the dramatic touch typically reserved for clouds to the water at their feet. It’s breathtaking stuff.
