We've had some pretty wicked storms in the area this year, along with the scorching heat and humidity this summer. These are some pics a friend sent me of the damage caused by a particularly vicious thunderstorm a couple weeks ago in Toronto.
The pics were taken at ten minute intervals from an apartment building balcony.
Seeing those, I can only hope the people in New Orleans and the southern states haven't been hit too badly by Hurricane Katrina.
Edit: Have just read the latest updates on the hurricane. Hank, I hope you're okay.
