I watched this on the 12-hour Loop on NOAA website, it looked massive.
The reason I was on there today was we too had a big storm form over the Mountains and it hung there all day building-skyward until it broke this
evening. It reminded me of a tornado because there were so many wind directions at once. I lost three major branches to my old Pecan tree; sad to
lose all those pecans since they are not ready until November.
I noticed it is a chain of storms from El Paso through OK and then on up to Maine. It seems to be pushed upward from the current Hurricane at the
Yucatan, Hurricane Karl. Of course the upper level movement from Canada is what is driving this one Eastward. (at least that is how I see it, don't
fire me if I get it wrong).
All I really know is that Upper Eastern Storm looked incredibly huge! I do hope everyone is safe tonight, if it is a line of storms the next round
should arrive by tomorrow. Oklahoma was hit hard too, so this is going to be a wave. Please be careful out there!
