Severe Thunderstorms Reign Down On Tri-State Area

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Heavy downpours and lightning moved through the Tri-State Area Monday night.

Severe thunderstorm warnings were issued for many parts of the Tri-State Area, including Manhattan, The Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and northern New Jersey.  The warning for southeastern Nassau County and Suffolk County expired at 9:45 p.m.

AccuWeather meteorologist Carl Erickson said there were numerous reports of quarter and nickel sized hail from Hudson, Union and Essex counties.  Parts of Brooklyn and Long Beach also saw hail.

Cloud to ground lightning  was also a cause for concern during the storm, the National Weather Service said.

Erickson, who described some of the rain as “blinding downpours,” said off-and-on rain was expected for the rest of Monday night.

    Headlines in newswriting are always written in some sort of synical way in order to grab the reader’s attention.

    I somehow believe that the use of the word REIGN here is a wordplay between the NOUN rain and the VERB to reign…reign meaning the rains TOOK CONTROL over/ was king of/mastered the tri-state area on Monday.
