Japanese Netizens Capture Jaw-Dropping Videos of Epic Thunderstorm Above Tokyo
Tokyo’s night sky was lit up with a natural “light show” after the city was hit with one of the strongest thunderstorms in recent years.
Locals reportedly did not know what to expect after an upcoming thunderstorm was announced the day before as Japan has been subjected to extreme weather phenomenon in the past decade.
So when the powerful thunderstorm entered the nation’s capital on Tuesday night, citizens had their cameras ready to capture images from the evening’s events, reports SoraNews24.
Well, that was quite a show! Haven’t seen lightning like that in Tokyo for years. When I was little my mum would tell me to hide my belly button during a storm so the god of thunder wouldn’t take it away. Hope you all hid your belly buttons!#雨#雷すごい#大雨#雷雨#雷#嵐pic.twitter.com/WMXRuflOjf
As the thunderstorm also came with heavy downpour, local authorities warned citizens to be vigilant due to the possibility of flooding. While the water level at the Meguro River rose during the thunderstorm, it decreased after the rain passed.
