Meanwhile, the weather continues, regardless of pandemics & politics.

Dunno whether derechos are worse than cyclones or not. They can travel for hundreds of kms,just a heck of a lot faster.

In the US.

Destructive derecho, a line of storms with 100 mph winds, slams Chicago and Midwest
The long-lived storms traveled over 200 miles across the country's center, producing 60-100 mph winds, downing trees and knocking out power for millions.

These things fascinate me as much as cyclones. Only heard of them in the last year or so, due to a novel set in the very North of Minnesota. Apparently the (real) storm in the story travelled across several states then back east across Canada & right out over the ocean before subsiding.
