I've never heard of this type of storm being called a derecho. We've always heard "straight-line winds." It's nice to put a name to the disaster!
I've been through those and they are pretty amazing.

Sounds like a squall line. Not to understate the severity but there's nothing really unusual about it. Typical TV weatherman nonsense.

That was cool thanks for the post.

And "derecho" means "straight" in spanish.
