All News 99.1 WNEW

WASHINGTON (WNEW) – Two years ago, most of us had never heard of a Derecho storm, but it made sure we will never forget what a Derecho is.

The Derecho made its presence known by knocking out power to thousands and leaving tree branches across roads and homes. Local residents were left in the dark, some for weeks, in boiling temperatures over 100 degrees.

Meteorologist John Ferrick says we shouldn’t have to suffer through another Derecho anytime soon. According to Ferrick, the storms happen every 10 years at best.

Here’s what listeners had to say about how they remember the storm:
