Derecho Moving Through Ohio Valley; Moderate Risk Issued

Damaging Wind Probability
A moderate risk of severe weather has been issued by the Storm Prediction Center as a derecho moves through the Ohio Valley towards the Mid Atlantic. This is the same complex that gave me such pictures that I have posted on the Facebook pictures.

Radar imagery suggests these storms are very powerful, with intense gust fronts being shot out very fast. Severe thunderstorm warnings indicate violent winds of 80 MPH are expected.
Anyone in the moderate risk should immediately prepare for potentially life-threatening wind damage.
