Mammatus clouds galore!

These are mammatus or mammatoculus clouds that formed over Hudson County and New York City this evening following a heavy thunderstorm. (They’re called mammatus from the Latin word for breasts! )
The sky shed a strange yellow glow over the area around 8:30 p.m. as the sun was setting. There were other people outside taking photos, too. Did you get your own? Have other photos of a news event or interesting event in Hudson County? Send them to us at!
