...but, the eastern-Pacific "typhoon/hurricane/cyclone" season 'officially' started somewhat earlier, on May 15th.

OK, it is true we dont have hurricanes here, but the summer started with some very exceptionally precipitation amounts..

For the past three days there have been patchy thunderstorms all over the country, where I live it was only once really and we didnt get that much. However, in other parts of the country it was much worse, including Prague.

Some thunderstorms were accompanied by hailstorm with hails of a size of a golf ball, damaging many cars:

And then yesterday, in one of the cities we broke a record in the most rainfall in 60 minutes for the past over 100 years! 120mm/h (over 4.7in/h).

And it is supposed to continue in the upcoming days.... It would be nice if we had at least one bigger thunderstorm here as it was only drizzling for the past 3 days, but almost nonstop.
