Actually a tornando from that storm hit down about 10 miles from my house. Alot of towns around me have no power and they say it might be a couple days before it is totally restored. We where lucky and the storm just grazed by us. We have the the mountain that my house is built on the back of and the trees that are around us to thank. There where tress down all around us on the main roads out of here. We just had a few small branches littering the yard. We went out to dinner with the kids Friday and got home between 8 and 9pm. We where unloading the van and just got the last bag in the house when hell broke loose. The wind was really bad. Tress where almost laying side ways. I would have hated to get the full force of it. Some of my wife's friends came over for showers and such since we are one of the few lucky ones to still have power.
Here's a clip from the town we live just outside of, actually only about 5 miles away.
And this story
Here tells a wider story.

At least 12 deaths have been linked to the storm, officials say.
The heatwave has seen all-time records smashed with temperatures of 104F (40C) in DC."
I hope that our people are not here.
