Severe Storms Indiana, Ohio, PennsylvaniaJuly 10th, 2013 at 1:55 pm by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
Severe storms blasted a large area from Indiana to Pennsylvania. We had everything from the usual trees and power lines down to a train derailment in Williams Co. Gusts have been measured to 86 mph in W. Ohio. Here’s Detroit Radar, N. Indiana radar and Cleveland radar. Here’s storm reports from SE Michigan, N. Indiana (reports of 60-70 mph winds and damage) and N. Ohio. Cars and trucks have been blown off highways and roof damage is reported. I-70 in Ohio was blocked at state route 256. There’s a landslide due to flooding at Elizabeth PA. From the Cleveland NWS:
WALL BLEW OUT AT TOWER CITY RTA STATION AND PART OF ROOF OF CLEVELAND CITY HALL BLOWN OFF AND OR DAMAGE
Also, today is the 100th anniversary of the hottest temperature every recorded in the U.S. (and now the world, since they booted out the old record of 136 in Libya in 1922) at Death Valley, California.
