Severe weather hits New York

Severe weather hit New York City on Wednesday, bringing lightning and heavy rain.

Many Twitter users shared dramatic photos of lightning striking city skyscrapers. In Brooklyn, flooding made several streets impassable. During a thunder shower, the facade inside an underpass of the Brooklyn Bridge collapsed, injuring five people. All injuries were minor, officials said.
