On August 10 a severe storm rolled across Iowa, Wisconsin, Illinois and Indiana that generated winds up to 130 miles per hour. Winds of 130 mph are found in EF2 tornadoes and category 3 hurricanes. Several people were injured, two died, and more than 1 million homes and businesses were without power in different states. Neither tornado nor hurricane, the storm that caused this is a derecho. It travelled more than 700 miles in fourteen hours, downing fifty-foot trees in some areas. Northern Indiana and Illinois are known as a corridor of enhanced derecho activity.
