What Is A Derecho?

All of Iowa has experienced this crazy storm we call a Derecho. What exactly is an Iowa Derecho? Well, it is a widespread, long-lived, straight-line wind storm that is associated with a fast-moving group of severe thunderstorms. They can cause hurricane-force winds, tornadoes, heavy rains, and flash floods. A lot of us experienced severe storms with high winds resulting in many trees falling on our homes. This long-lived widespread wind event went all across I-80 hitting every town along the way. Winds were greater than 58mph with some towns even higher than 70mph causing serious damage to the home. This type of storm is very unique to the Midwest.
