Rare Storm Hits East Coast

3 Jul

The LA Times has an interesting article about the storms on the East Coast. It’s the same old story: power outages, elevators not working, and people boiling water. What’s unique is that it wasn’t a tornado. It wasn’t a hurricane. It wasn’t a thunderstorm. It was a derecho. A what?

For more about derechos (DRAY-co’s) ….than you probably ever wanted to know…NOAA has more information. From the NOAA picture, they look like some nasty storms.
