I don't know about you, but I woke up at 4am to the sound of crashing and my bed shaking, very afraid and truly believing the building under construction next to mind had fallen down and was possibly about to kill me. Turns out, it was just ear-shattering thunder from a crazy lightning storm that rolled through NYC around 4am. If you either slept through it or stayed safely in bed (like I did), here's some videos and photos of the big event. Look forward to more rainy days and cooler weather later this week!
This thunderstorm woke me up and now I feel like I’m in some apocalyptic horror film. #NYC— Evelyn Lee (@evelynlns) August 4, 2015
