The derecho that whipped the East Coast: A massive storm’s aftermath

  • 90mph the maximum winds reported from the storm, which started in the Midwest
  • 13 the number of people killed by the line of storms, from Indiana to New Jersey
  • 3M the number of people who went without power, many in the Washington DC area source

» Strong, windy and quick: As anyone in the Mid-Atlantic region will tell you, the storm that slammed the region last night was there and gone within an hour — but for a good half an hour or so, it was heavy. The style of storm even has a proper name — the derecho. Or as National Weather Service meteorologist Bryan Jackson put it: ”It’s one of those storms. It just plows through.” And yes, this storm is what took down Netflix and Instagram.
