Two major storms deluge Buenos Aires


A lake forms at the intersection of Niceto Vega and Uriarte
Barrio Palermo, Cuidad de Buenos Aires

the weather everywhere seems to keep getting crazier... this past friday afternoon, for the second time in four days, buenos aires got nailed by torrential downpours and the last one caused disruption in subway and commuter train service... water was pouring down the stairs of the entrance to the lacroze subway station on the "d" line and shorted out the third rail of electrical service on several commuter lines... i can only imagine the chaos and even though i love big storms, i'm kind of glad i wasn't there...

see this article (in spanish) in the la nacion newspaper for more...
