  1. 10 hours into this crazy outbreak, three well-defined couplets are ongoing simultaneously in West Tennessee. Hope folks there took the watches and warnings seriously.
  2. Evident debris ball after hit on Spencer, Indiana.
  3. Couplet coming for (TMEM) Memphis INTL Airport's Radar tower.
  4. Yes. This is the Tor warned cell WNW of Memphis.
  5. Nice video looking down upon the river and adjacent communities of Quelimane to give a small glimpse of the coastal geography there.
  6. I'd imagine a pretty dire surge situation for low-lying coastal communities there. Non-stop onshore onslaught of flow and fetch in the southern semicircle of the cyclone must be driving water into the port and river estuaries around Quelimane.
  7. Freddy is crawling into this latest landfall. Some modeling allows the cyclone to stall just inland only to re-emerge off the coast (again) with another period of reintensification. Need to go back over ACE numbers, but Freddy may have even surpassed Ioke for all-time highest now.
  8. Yeah we did actually have some strong gusts associated with winds mixing down during the quasi-linear event. I am certain we had gusts around 50 mph. But I have to admit, the winds that came several hours after with partly cloudy skies were more impressive. No surprise that there were more outages that followed last night. Looks like counties up in Kentucky got it worse than Tennessee however.
  9. We lost power a few times, but only briefly. Some outages lingering here and there, but fortunately, the event was rather tame around KTRI. Nothing tornadic. Probably had a few strong gusts around 50-60 mph near S. Holston River/Lake area that brought down some trees. Some strong gusts in southern and eastern portions of Sullivan Co. Hope everyone fared as well elsewhere.
