The promise of a new day
It was James McCanney who first used the term "himmicane" many years ago, back when one hit out in the Western U.S., and then a ferocious one hit the Tetras Mountains of Slovakia in 2004.
Remember John Moore's research associate Ann Morrison from that "Skywarn Training seminar" back in 2005 and what she was told PRIVATELY by a young meteorologist in the hallway ?????? Land Hurricanes aka 'Himmicanes' will become EXTREMELY common as Planet-X draws ever so closer & starts creating UNPRECEDENTED effects to our Atmosphere...
Emergencies were declared in Maryland, Ohio, Virginia, West Virginia and Washington because of damage from a rare "super derecho" storm packing hurricane-force winds across a 700-mile stretch from the Midwest to the Atlantic Ocean.
Powerful storms that brought wind gusts of up to 90 mph on Sunday knocked out power to more than 200,000 Commonwealth Edison customers in northeastern Illinois.
Utilities in Ohio, Virginia and Maryland described damage to their power grids as catastrophic.
AccuWeather, a weather forecaster, said the "super derecho" storm that caused the widespread damage had raced 700 miles from northern Indiana to the Atlantic coast in 12 hours.
A derecho - Spanish for "straight" - is a long-lasting wind storm that accompanies fast-moving thunderstorms or showers, AccuWeather said. The most powerful derechos are called "super derechos," described by AccuWeather as a "land hurricane."
