A line with severe storms came rolling through on May 2nd, 2007 at about 7:20pm, it knocked the power out about 5 minutes of hitting. Don't know the exact wind speed but wouldn't be surprised if the wind was 80mph with gusts reaching 100mph. There were fences down everywhere, clumps of shingles ripped off houses, large trees uprooted as well as snapped at the base of the trunk. Nothing really happened to our house except our basketball goal was thrown in the pool and our storage shed was thrown across the yard. My grandparents you live about 15 minutes away found a full size trampoline that flew over their fence and landed in their backyard. To explain how strong the winds were, street signs were all bent at about a 70 degree angle and some steel poles were bent at about 45 degrees at our church. The entire wind storm lasted probably about 30 minutes which is very unusual in a storm such as that. Our power was out from about 7:25pm until 9:00am the next day, and some neighborhoods are still without power and are expected to be without for as much as 4-7 days. Well I hope you enjoy because I sure did.
