At 5 p.m. on June 13 in Cincinnati, the sky turned grey.
An hour later, the region was fighting a windy, rainy, violent storm that would scatter debris and cause major damage.
The strong storm came in on what's known as a shelf cloud, which the National Weather Service says
often brings severe and damaging winds. The storm looked very ominous (and slightly apocalyptic) as it encroached on the city.
The winds toppled trees, destroyed playground equipment, blew patio furniture away and took down power lines and poles, according to public photos posted to social media accounts.
We all know Cincinnatians love a good storm, and when one comes through as unique as this one, they've got to snap a pic. Check out these photos and videos from Twitter users across the Queen City.
