Good evening, ladies and gents of the Noticeboard.
Those that live in the Midwestern part of the US (and Canada) often have to face not only tornados and hurricanes, but also derecho storms. What is a derecho storm, you may ask? A derecho is a very long, straight line of thunderstorms that develop during this time of the year and contain goodies such as hurricane-like winds, torrential rain, and hail. What makes these kinds of storms interesting is that they tend to be very slow-moving, so they are capable of a good amount of destruction. One example is the kind of destruction that occurs in this video. Don't get too scared!
