Some have described the incident as something "terrible" and others called "incredible", and one man said he even felt the sense of shock from lightning.
However, this was not the end of the world, but only a hail storm sweeping through the center of the district of Queens in New York. Some of the hailstones were the size of a baseball, they smashed windows of cars, street furniture and glass, reports dailymail.co.uk
Evan Sussman says he was shot in the head from falling hail, and have never seen anything like it. Another person was struck by lightning on the beach in New Jersey, and thousands of passengers have been locked in railway stations.
