We had many severe thunderstorm warnings put into effect do to high gusty winds in the area, Along with a few tornado warnings in effect do to the fact that the line of severe thunderstorms was "capable" of producing possible tornadoes however didn't Thank Goodness. At one time I did pick up some rotation in the WLFI viewing area, Yes, in Newton county. You can see the rotation in this image below.See that little dot of green inside all that red? That's the slight rotation. It didn't last long and thank God it didn't turn into anything. It just had us on high alert for a while! But everyone stayed calm, safe, and stayed storm ready, and that's all we can ask for!
Lafayette, seen winds gusting to 36 mph. We really lucked out! Remington, seen gusts to 41mph. But the more south you go from Lafayette, the winds really picked up! Gusting to 70 and even 80 mph!! Just take a look at some of the high wind and damage reports in Indiana below.

This low pressure was so strong, Or should I say the pressure dropped so much that this low pressure system is equivalent to a cat 3 or cat 4 hurricane! WOW!
And this storm was all over CNN as well. I found this video of some of the damage in MO, and IL, earlier. take a look. The size of the downed trees are just amazing!I mean is that unbelievable or what? mother nature is an amazing powerful thing that's for sure!
