56 Images photographed by Michael G. Gordon on June 22, 2002 during a spectacular thunderstorm. The first photo is at noon local time and the sky became so dark the streetlights and building exterior lights illuminated. Rainfall was tremendous, approximately two inches in one hour; and for the state of Minnesota, rainfall in the past 5 days has ranged from 5 to 14 inches.
