- Story Text: Strong winds and rain lashed the German capital on Tuesday (May 30) flooding underground stations, soaking cyclists and bringing a sudden end to record hot temperatures.
The deluge flooded streets, man-holes and gutters burst, and rain poured down into underground stations.
Storm warnings were issued around the country as storm fronts brought high winds, rain and even hail to parts of the country that have been basking in sunshine for days.
