20 Breathtaking Images Of Virginia Storms And Their Aftermath

With summer coming, I can’t help but get a little excited for summer rain – the kind that cools off a hot day, the kind that pounds on your windows at night but provides the perfect backdrop for sleep, and the kind that lights up the heavens with the fireworks of lightning storms. I love them all. And we get our fair share of storms here – in every season – from winter snowstorms to summer thunderstorms. The following images have been taken by some amazing photographers here in the state. They perfectly capture the majesty of storms and the incredible aftermath that they create. Enjoy!

Storms are amazing in and of themselves, but sometimes it’s the aftermath that truly takes our breath away…

Unfortunately, storms aren’t always beautiful — and they can leave damage behind. But I love this collection of photos all the same and hope that you’ve enjoyed it as much as I have!
