New York City was hit yesterday with the first snow squall this season and social networks were quickly flooded with photos and videos. And while the phenomenon looks pretty dramatic in real-time, timelapse videos make it look like an apocalypse!

Snow squalls are “quick intense bursts of snow accompanied by strong gusty winds,” as National Weather Service describes them. They are short-lived and not dangerous, except that they reduce visibility so you need to be extra careful when driving.

Many Twitter users have shared photos and videos of yesterday’s snow squall. But timelapse videos are definitely the most awe-inspiring. Here are a few of them:

In these timelapse videos, the snow squall looks downright terrifying. But fortunately, the only danger of this phenomenon is reduced visibility. So, I hope that you arrived home safe and sound if this caught you while driving.

    To the person who shot #5, why don’t they shoot in landscape? In their entire lives have they never seen a TV or been to a movie? Shoot in landscape! I see this all the time and the sky filling 2/3rd’s of the video is so informing.
