    Event Straight-line wind damage

    Additional notes

    Widespread wind damage occurred across the Ohio Valley when a thin line of thunderstorms raced across the region.  These storms were not particularly strong, however winds just a few thousand feet were very high (60-80 mph).  The downdrafts in the thunderstorms were able to mix these strong winds down to the surface, with widespread reports of 50-65 mph winds across the Ohio Valley.
