Destructive storm in new York: photo & video

Last night, may 15, on the North-East of the United States was struck by a powerful storm.

While aware of 5 deaths, among them — 11-year-old girl. Hundreds of thousands of homes were left without power.

Still intermittently working transport, in particular railway in the state of new York, workers trying to clear the paths of fallen trees.

According to meteorologists, wind gusts in the region reached 60 mph (95.6 km) per hour. In Pottstown (state of PA) was registered in wind power in the 81 mile (130,3 km) per hour. In some areas, dropped hail the size of a tennis ball.

As of Wednesday morning, 16 may, are still without electricity more than 350 million consumers in Pennsylvania, new York, new Jersey and Connecticut.

And while that cyclone does not think to retreat. Forecasters say that in the northeast a few days will be rain on Saturday in some areas there is a risk of flooding.

Residents of new York continue to share in social networks with photographic evidence of the weather and its consequences. By the way, after the storm over the city stretched a double rainbow.

Look at the size of this hail! Wow! It shattered windows, dented cars in this Columbia County neighborhood.
