Perhaps the tor warn was auto-generated due to the heavy winds moving directly over the radar site? Some toward and some away?  I don't know if all tor warns have human approval?

So all these storms started rotating? Wtf

 

The shear is there for rotation, the question was just whether storms would really get going after this mornings crap.

Have to assume a human has to approve before a warning goes out. Otherwise too much liability for false warning.

All warnings are human made.

Very southern tip of the storm just hit here.  Some strong gusts, but nothing really unusual.  The clouds to my north (towards Ashburn) look wild, though.

When the TOR warned storm passed here, I lost power (for about half a second).  That's the second power loss of any kind we've had since we moved in three years ago - the only other one was during the Derecho (also for just a second).
