Earth & Space Weather ~ Flash Flooding, Thunderstorm, Hailstorm
July 18, 2017: People had to swim to safety in the flooded streets of Istanbul on Tuesday after heavy rain and storms brought chaos to Turkey’s largest city and caused shipping traffic on oil and grain routes through the Bosphorus Strait to be suspended for some hours.
120 days worth of rain fell in just 12 hours, creating pandemonium as flood waters overwhelmed 100s of vehicles on city roads and highways. An astounding 6700 lightning strikes were recorded in a two hour period during the peak of the first wave of severe weather. More is forecasted for tonight.
Many roads, bridges, tunnels and metro stations were flooded and cars submerged in torrential downpours that followed two hours of lightning flashes across the city.
Television footage showed people swimming in the streets and being rescued by boats from streets and flooded houses.

July 18, 2017: Ball lightning, a very rare and one of the most fascinating types of lightning, has been recorded in Bergamo, Italy around 01:30CET on July 14, 2017 during severe storms.
Immediately after the strong pulsing glow came a very strong smell of sulfur, a common trait with ball lightning reports. There were no signs of fire the following morning and this occurred some 2 – 3 meters (6.5 – 9.8 feet) above the tree tops on a hillside in front of the observers home.

July 19, 2017: If a person or pet were to get caught out in a storm of this magnitude they would endure serious injuries if they weren’t able to get to some sort of shelter very quickly.
Storms like this are popping up all around the globe and can happen when any severe weather is active.
This was passed along to me and I am not sure of exactly where this took place, basically got it without any details but wanted to share because this type of weather is occurring on a fairly regular basis these days so be safe out there. If anyone knows where this took place please enlighten. Thank you.
