In case you can’t see out your window, New York, there’s a storm a-brewin’. For my money, the rain we’re seeing right now blows the puny little derecho out of the water. There’s thunder! There’s lightning! There’s hail! Brooklyn and Queens are flooding, apparently! But you knew that, of course.

An enterprising videographer has already caught footage of the storm, capturing whirlpools and nearly submerged cars on a flooded stretch of Knickerbocker Avenue in Brooklyn. It’s intense. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go look for an umbrella.
