Another Storm Of The Century (Of The Week)

By Marcus Gilmer in News on Jun 24, 2010 3:00PM

Another round of severe thunderstorms rumbled through the area yesterday evening, causing flooding, street closures, minor damage, heavy traffic delays, power outages, and even spurring a few tornado warnings as sirens across the city wailed. Once the storms moved on, though, we were left with a glowing, golden sky above and a gorgeous rainbow to the east. Enjoy these reader-submitted photos from our Flickr pool and, after the jump, check out amazing video of the storm over downtown shot by reader Craig Shimala.
