A line of severe thunderstorms raced through the Ohio River Valley Wednesday, causing numerous power outages due to downed trees and powerlines. Severe Weather Expert Dr. Greg Forbes says the area of wind damage is concentrated enough and long enough to be classified as a derecho.

According to NOAA’s Storm Prediction Center, roughly 300 reports of either wind damage or high winds (greater than 58 mph) were received in the Ohio and Tennessee Valleys on July 10, the majority of which were in a swath from eastern Illinois and Indiana into Ohio, western Pennsylvania, southwest New York, and northern West Virginia.

The National Weather Service will conduct damage surveys from Indiana to Pennsylvania Thursday to investigate whether some damage was caused by tornadoes.  Several photos from North Beaver Township, Pa. and also near Storrs, Conn. circulated via social media Wednesday.
