A 600 mile swath of destruction from Indiana to the mid-Atlantic coast


Only had a quick look, but this looks like a nice presentation from the National Weather Service.


In case you missed it, this was a really bad storm for many of us, my power was out for five days. No damage to the house or car but trees blocked my driveway, thankfully my neighbor helped clear that. But it didn't much matter, you couldn't go anywhere because all the roads around me were blocked with fallen trees and downed power lines. Not much point in going anywhere though, since nobody had power. But it was a very narrow path to the storm, so many people in South Jersey were barely affected.

I distinctly recall narrowly avoiding being pelted in the head by one of the many walnuts that were flying off the tree in my yard while I was running from the pool to the house.
