    2012 June 29, NWS Storm Prediction Center via @MIDSCAR: "Midwest Storm Chasers and Researchers Wow!! Parts of Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky and West Virginia got rocked today by an event known as a derecho (a long lived damaging wind event). A squall line formed and quickly progressed eastward. Hearing of a lot of damage in Ohio...each black square you see is a wind report of 65kts+. Insane!" This is what caused all those site otuages.

    From March 2–3, 2012, a deadly tornado outbreak occurred over a large section of the Southern United States into the Ohio Valley region. The storms resulted in 40 tornado-related fatalities, 22 of which occurred in Kentucky. Tornado-related deaths also occurred in Alabama, Indiana, and Ohio. The outbreak was the second deadliest in early March for the U.S. on record; only the 1966 Candlestick Park tornado had a higher death toll for a tornadic system in early March.
