If I threw four baseballs at you right now, how many do you think you could dodge? Two? Maybe three? You’ve got no chance of dodging all four though.

This kind of howling rain doesn’t fall very often, but a scary weather phenomenon called microbursts have been more frequent across the US in the past few years.
These things are basically the opposite of tornadoes, so rather than sucking up everything in their path, they dump several inches of rain down in just a few minutes.
