The line broke apart around my region, looks like some cells to the south now but heading east and out to sea.

The records don't go back that far...No weather satellites until what, the 60's?  Maybe the 50's...

Well that was interesting, driving along and a storm hits, in front of me leaves start to blow across the road really fast, then little branches, then a big tree snaps off and cartwheels over the power lines.   Had to turn around and take a detour.

Weird thing is it didn't take down the power lines, I think the wind was pushing it up and over, craziest thing I've ever seen, a 50 foot section of a tree with a trunk maybe 16 inches in diameter just flying up over the power lines.

Sounds like straight-line winds or a possible EF-0 tornado :o

Just looked at your radar and there's an impressive bow-echo bowling through your area :scared:

It was straight line, and narrow, it was a few hundred feet in front of me and probably only 100 feet wide blowing stuff horizontally across the road.

The news is reporting almost 100,000 people have lost power in PA and NJ.
