Check out the below video shot from a 20th floor apartment in Queens, NY, by YouTube member DTRAVELZ
The video is a bit shaky in places (he was in a freakin’ tornado!), but the camera clearly captures the sight of this storm approaching and absolutely engulfing the entire area. This thing passes directly over his building! Check out the intense power of the wind and the incredible amount of rain falling. The clacking sounds are likely hailstones bouncing off the glass window. Great work DTRAVELZ!
This guy is really lucky that his windows stayed intact — apparently some of the glass panes of the balcony below his were blown off.
Put this on full screen, and turn up the speakers!
