"Hail" mageddon in Brooklyn, New York

* Cooler tomorrow: Full Forecast | Golf ball marks from heaven & hail *

The New York City region, blasted by two tornadoes last month and one in June, was raked by a cluster of severe thunderstorms last night. The storms, whose lightning delayed the Vikings-Jets game, produced accumulating hail of nearly an inch in parts of Brooklyn. Their torrential rain also produced flash flooding.

Gawker and Huffington Post have some great pics. For a nice recap of the event, check out the Wall Street Journal's Metropolis.
