This was a derecho! There were continuous 58 mph + wind reports for well over 400 km! Currently, were up to 237 wind reports, including two reports of 100mph winds (many at 70-80 mph +)... Again, this may not have been the strongest derecho ever, but still, it's a derecho in my opinion! Also, there was still a lot of damage with this derecho, so it's nothing to sneeze at! Power poles snapped in half, houses damaged (several losing roofs), many large trees down, car ports destroyed, and several cars blown off the roads! I still can't believe there was a derecho on the 10th anniversary of my first storm chase! Crazy!
