Heavy Thunderstorm seen from a train, June 20, 2013

The days between June 17 til June 20 became exceptional warm in Germany and generated new temperature records. On Thursday, June 20, heavy thunderstorms occurred throughout Germany when colder air collided with the heat. The storms did some damage in Berlin and other areas and the day later railways connections were interrupted. In Berlin a “S-Bahn”-waggon jumped the rails when the train hit a fallen tree.

Some hours before the thunderstorms had already reached Hanover in Lower Saxony. Impressing clouds could be seen from a speed-train arriving Hanover main station.

The conductor wasn’t impressed by the dramatic imaginery outside the windows.
