I had to look this up and I found out I only live about 20 miles away!!!
Where we live the weather today was very wet with horizontal rain/wind. I heard it start at 3am yesterday and it sounded really gusty.
No fences down but two trees have broken branches, now on the lawn.
Kids were scared but I wasn't worried, here's why;
Been to Wales off-roading in 2005 and the rain was horizontal there, and off-roaded in the Alps where we were so high up, we were actually in a
thunderstorm (hail and rain like buckets), 5 feet from a 200 foot shear drop.
I have seen, and been a casualty of, a horizontal tornado in 2006. Scary. We were all in a tent at the time.
Hope everyone is safe.
