I've never seen it so windy as on Friday night; it lasted about 10 minutes for us, with gusts feeling like 50mph.
Some impressive pictures here:

Default And again

Supposedly some more horrible storms blew through about an hour south of me, again. 90MPH gusts reported in a few places. It sounds like it was exactly the same track as the one from a few days ago.

Default This is a headline that gets my goat

Lies, damn lies and statistics:

"In June they had the month's worth of rain in one day."
HOW MANY DAYS DO YOU GET RAIN IN JUNE ANYWAY?

I'm in an orange area. We had out first actual thunder storm for the first time in two months today. (The last storm I went wild about was only 5 minutes of half-hearted rain.)

Default Tornadoes cause chaos in Poland

Nice video of a couple of Polish tornadoes. An impressive swath of demolished woodland at around the 35 second mark.
