Episode Narrative A very hot and potentially unstable airmass interacted with northwesterly flow aloft to produce a derecho across northern Illinois. This derecho then moved rapidly east southeast across the Ohio Valley producing widespread straight line wind damage. This rare derecho affected nearly every county in southeast Indiana, northern Kentucky, and southwestern Ohio with severe winds. This caused widespread power outages that lasted several days in some locations. Isolated large hail also occurred with the stronger portions of the system.
Event Narrative One roof was completely ripped off of a barn with numerous reports of other barns also damaged due to thunderstorm winds. Trees were downed across the county.
