Village Storm

by SonicFields



'Village Storm' is a field recording of an actual thunderstorm which passed just to the north of the village of Roydon, Norfolk, UK at 17:36hrs on 15 June 2009. The storm lasted for just over an hour causing widespread damage from lightning and flooding.

This natural recording starts with the first spots of rain as the storm approaches and continues through until it slowly recedes into the distance. The recording includes the sound of rain, thunder, excited nearby children and the faint sound of a whimpering dog, a blackbird in full song; some light traffic may be heard and the distant sound of an emergency reponse vehicle siren as it attends to storm damage.
