Meteorologist Alexandra Steele explains what a derecho is, and how this storm created havoc across the country.
Yeah, in the midwest we get high straight line winds every few years, though in my entire life I don’t remember one this strong.

“THE MID-JULY 1995 DERECHOS:
An exceedingly warm and humid air mass produced a deadly heat wave over parts of the Midwest during mid-July 1995. The broad area of hot and humid air contributed to the development of a series of progressive derechos along a nearly stationary west-east front along the northern fringe of the heat wave region (Fig 1). Four derechos occurred over portions of the northern United States and southern Canada between the evening of July 11th and the morning of July 15th, and the storm paths are shown as colored outlines in Fig. 1.
