1 millions without power now from severe thunderstorms today!!!! NOT GOOD


www.weather.com

Typically at the northern edge of excessive heat in the summer months, you'll find severe thunderstorms. Friday into Saturday is no different. Tonight we saw a line of thunderstorms move through the Ohio River Valley through the mid-Atlantic states, causing power outages, downed trees, and other storm damage. Reports of tornadoes are still being investigated. To view photos of Friday evening's storm damage,

I just heard the Weather Channel stated that over a million people have no power due to severe thunderstorms from a bow echo that race across from Illinois all the way through Ohio and now its in the Washington DC area...

My concern is that no one is talking about as of yet that a lot these people wont have power but will be affected by extreme heat around 100 degrees for the next few days as well....

About 15 people were trapped in their vehicles after at least 16 electric poles fell onto vehicles and Hamilton Road south of state Route 161 and north of Thompson Road. They were all safely rescued from their vehicles just before 10 p.m. Friday.

Stay safe, keep a cool head and treat everyone as brothers and sisters.

Strength.

Is it in the northeast yet?

My area got hit by a "water pipe malfunction" but I think it's only local to my town.

I guess this is all due to the intense heat.

We really got it bad here in Ft. Wayne - I think it is76,000
still without power here. We are lucky as our power kept going
off but came back on. We have large tree branches down and
lost some shingles - some areas much worse. Straight line winds
clocked at 91 mph. Tomorrows forecast for more of the same -
for those in the hot temperature areas keep an eye on the weather.

I am near Cincinnati Ohio and was driving home from work when they hit. It was weird, never seen a storm quite like this one come down. It's been dry and the winds in front of the storm picked up dirt and debris and it was flying through the air. Had to roll up my windows! One point the dirt was too thick to see through for a few seconds. Power was out most of my route home. It came back on here at 830 then flickered off and on until almost 10. It's back on now. I am glad because we are supposed to have another 100 plus day tomorrow. A house down the way had a huge tree uproot and fall on it. The winds were crazy! It was a fast moving storm.

It was crazy earlier today. The power flicked on and off (luckily stayed on after the storm), and during the storm, it suddenly started dropping marble sized hail everywhere. Hail. In. Summer.

I've never seen anything like it. One of my facebook friends from another part of my city had a picture of hail the size of a golfball.

Weather is crazy.

Here's a picture:

This is all being manufactured... for those that don't believe in or understand weather manipulation/creation brush up on it... it's not like it hasn't existed for over a century...

Raytheon makes some extremely interesting weapons of war that our government is not allowed to use on other nations due to a treaty signed over 35 years ago... however there is nothing stopping them from using it against us...

99.9% of people don't even know what crap smells like anymore let alone possess the ability to open their eyes and see that it's hit the fan and everyone is about to be covered in it...

Even when they are plastered head to toe in fecal matter they still won't believe it anyway because the giant talking heads on tv will tell them everything is fine... and they'll bleat... and go back to their couch and wait for the next season of American Idol to start...

Sorry for everyone, this is just terrible. Need to check on the elderly and kids, young, they won't do well in heat without electricity. Prayers are needed now.

rofl.. take a teaspoon of cement and harden up


Here in South Australia 100F (38C) is a nice sunny day.. once you hit 115 (46C) for a week straight then it's time to find a shady tree

I even forgot to mention that it was over 100 degrees fahrenheit yesterday, and during the hail it was in the mid-90's. I guess the atmosphere was a bit colder than the ground was. Lots of lightning at the same time, so maybe the electricity had something to with it too. No idea, to be perfectly honest.

It's here (SJ), now, and the lightning is incredible. Got the scanner on, lightning strike went through a house, trees down all over....

No power in the summer is much better than no power in the winter. Atleast you still have cold water to cool yourself down. Winter there's no heat unless you build a fire. Humanity has survived in the heat for thousands of years with no AC. The cold has always been a death sentence.

I still think one of the best gifts you can give a neighbour or a loved one that doesn't live with you is a power cut kit.

I've done this for my girlfriend and her daughters who live up country from me. Big plastic container containing...

Candles, the big church ones if possible.
Lighters.
Torch x 2 with spare batteries.
Choccy bars/sweets
Pack of cigs
A guide to action and list of emergency numbers for thier area.
An old plug in phone.....the cordless ones won't work in a power cut, you can find them in any thrift store these days.

Thats enough to see you through a short power cut.

CX.

ETA: Sorry, for to add that i stick a handfull of light sticks in there too, you can get them for less than a dollar/pound each these days.

LOL how terribly tragic.
the entire NATION that I live with runs on only a few hours of power a day...its a part of our daily lives, and we all live with it.
You think you know what the word 'suffering' means...its very different to the first-world ideology.
