Thunderstorm caught on camera in Tottenhill after yellow weather warning issued in East of England





Thunderbolts and lightning were very, very frightening for many as a severe storm hit West Norfolk in the early hours of this morning.

It came after the Met Office issued a yellow warning of thunderstorms for the East of England between Sunday afternoon and Monday morning.

In West Norfolk, the storm was caught on camera by Lucy Clarke in Tottenhill, who sent in her videos to the Lynn News and said: “Some cool footage of the thunderstorm in the early hours of this morning.

“Constant lightning for two hours straight!”

She said the footage was taken between 1am and 2am on Monday.

The Met Office said there was a small chance that homes and businesses could be flooded quickly, with damage to some buildings from floodwater, lightning strikes, hail or strong winds.

“Heavy showers and thunderstorms are likely to arrive across southern England during Sunday and move northeastwards through the afternoon,” a spokesperson said.

“From late afternoon through Sunday night there is a small chance of thunderstorms becoming severe, with large hail, frequent lightning, gusty winds, and torrential rain producing 30 to 40 mm in an hour.

“The most likely scenario is that impacts are more limited and isolated, but should these more severe storms develop, flooding and disruption could occur.”
