Derecho does damage in Bismarck


This is your annual summer reminder that large scale wind events, like derechoes (long lasting, large wind storms) can be just as, if not more destructive than tornadoes. In fact, the storm in this video did damage as far north as Minot on Thusday, and eventually worked its way through northern Minnesota overnight into Friday morning.
Pay attention to the warnings you hear on TV or the radio, and recognize that there is danger in severe thunderstorms just as there is in a tornado.
