Severe Storm Threat in Northeast Thursday ~ Possible Derecho


www.weather.com

The potential exists for widespread damaging winds from parts of New York and southern New England to Ohio. In addition, large hail and a few tornadoes are also possible.

In fact, our Severe Weather Expert Dr. Greg Forbes says that it's possible that a derecho, a widespread damaging wind event, could be ongoing during the morning hours from portions of New York State to central and southern New England.

A frontal system is on the move out of the Great Lakes and is set to bring a significant threat of severe thunderstorms from the Northeast to the Ohio Valley on Thursday.

So another Derecho may hit the same areas it did last month. They are supposed to be very rare. The one last month did a lot of damage.

What the last one caused; 22 deaths, millions in damages, and millions without power


In total, 22 people were killed across seven states and the District of Columbia.[17] At least six and possibly seven of those deaths were in Virginia, all of them due to fallen trees.[15] Two of the deaths were in New Jersey, after two children were killed by falling trees at a campground at Parvin State Park, three deaths were reported in Maryland and one death was reported in Ohio after the storm.[18] As it occurred in the midst of the record Summer 2012 North American heat wave, conditions on following days were problematic, particularly for seniors and vulnerable people. Scattered structural damage also occurred along the path of the derecho, from both falling trees and the winds themselves. Some of the damage included siding torn off houses, roofs removed from houses, businesses and apartment buildings, mobile homes heavily damaged, barns and garages destroyed and airplanes flipped.[2]

On July 19th, 2012, President Barack Obama declared three counties in New Jersey (Atlantic, Cumberland, and Salem) federal disaster areas. This assured disaster relief through federal assistance to local and state governments and some non-profit organizations

Thanks for the "heads up"

At least the weather folks are saying that there is a chance of such an event.. the last one blindsided us here in the Valley...

Prayers out for all in the forecast area, learn from the last event, prepare for the worst, and hope for the best.

Thank you for posting this article. Not only for the information, but also the fact that I have (interestingly) never encountered "derecho" in all my years as a human, and it was one of a few blank spots in a crossword puzzle I had just been working on. Double bonus! Sweet!

Oh lordie, right over where I live too. We are used to that kind of weather around these parts though.

I am in N. Indiana - I see we are in the red on
the map. I hope this storm doesn't produce the
damage that the one we had a few weeks did.
We are just now getting the area cleaned up
from the last one. Will be keeping a close eye
on this thread for updates. Thanks OP S @ F.

those things are SCARY. i've been through one. it's highly unusual that another one is even POSSIBLE so soon after the last one.

I saw the storm in a dream last night. It will be very bad, but think of the bright side at least there will be rain out of the deal. Would recommend that you get some water stockpiled, power will be out all over the place for a while.

I still have $&£# holes in my roof from the last one! The roofer has us on a waiting list and I can still drive out and see tarps on roofs that haven't been fixed yet. My fridge is empty though. I was going shopping tonight or tomorrow to restock but never mind that now. I will just get some pet food and call it a day.

Thanks RealSpoke. I had no idea this was coming again. I look to be just one the border of it this time. That's quite enough.

I see by the map that this storm will be
further to the south than the last one.
My family is in Ky and they are in the
red this time, they didn't get any of the
storm last go around.

I had planned on grocery shopping
tomorrow, I will wait now but I still
have food in the fridge and freezer
that will go bad without power. The
store shelves were very low here
after the last storm and with the
drought we have had I expect to
see food shortages in the early Fall.

Thanks for the heads up! I'm right in the path. Now at least I know to pay attention tomorrow and stock up on some necessities in the morning.

I never even heard this term before this year. Now possibly a second one? Very weird indeed.

I watched that storm as it went across Ohio....I don't think they had a clue it would blossom as it did....


And, now parts of Michigan is under a severe Thunderstorm watch until 5AM EDT Some areas are under a sever WARNIING

I just heard that a bow echo is forming in central
MIchigan. Check your local weather everyone and
get further details for your area.

I heard that the bow echo was forming. When
I looked at the radar about 20 minutes ago it
did seem to be more bowed, not so much so
now - hope it stays that way. Not an expert
just my observation - check your weather
often for updates and stay safe.
