The Story Behind This Amazing Rochester Storm Video
The winds tore at roofs and trees, the rain filled rivers and gutters, and hail was pummeling homes. Which is, of course, the perfect time to be in your garage filming terrifying storms. At least that's what Nathan told me.
Who's Nathan Hauber? He's the guy that took the amazing video during the storm last night. Hail had just finished hitting Byron, MN hard, and Nathan was in his garage. He recorded the clouds above the house across the street and a viral video was born (at last count, it has been viewed more than 24,000 times). Cross that off the bucket list, Nathan! Watch the video and listen to Nathan tell the story behind it in the player above.
Just how bad was the storm? According to KROCNEWS.com...
The Rochester Fire Dept. responded to numerous incidents, including a home in the 600 block of Southtown Heights Dr. SW which had its roof completely blown off. A tree crashed through a wall of a home in the 3500 block of Odyssey Dr. SW and construction trailers were blown over at Bamber Valley Elementary School. RFD crews also found several downed trees and powerlines along 18th Ave. SW which resulted in the road being closed from Mayowood Rd. SW to Westwood Rd. SW.
Now THAT'S a storm.
