Nasty weather!
Arguably the worst natural disaster I’ve actually seen; the worst aftermath anyway. (Once saw 100-mph winds in a thunderstorm; it was like someone turned a fire hose on the windows of the house and it nearly blew the front doors in.) At the office it just got dark mid-afternoon with some lightning and it rained very hard; around home it’s another story. Golf ball-sized hail and a 70+ mph straight wind (like the storm I remember) downed trees everywhere, blew leaves and branches all over the streets, broke windows, tore off at least two roofs, smushed an older house near me, pockmarked siding and left a couple hundred thousand people without electricity for a few days.

As far as I know nobody was killed or seriously hurt.
