The National Weather Service defines derechos as long-lived, straight-line windstorms that can cause widespread damage. They occur when a large complex of thunderstorms moves in a straight line for an extended distance, producing damaging winds along a broad path. Derechos can lead to extensive property damage, uprooted trees, and utility disruptions.


Hailstorms are a particular concern during the summer months. Hailstones can form into varying sizes, ranging from small pellets to large, damaging chunks of ice. Hailstorms can harm crops, vehicles, roofs, and other properties, depending on the size and intensity of the hailstones.
