Nearly 4 million people were without power across the affected states at one point Saturday, a number that dropped by the end of the night to around 3 million.


Intense Storms Called a "Super Derecho" Slam 700 Miles of the US

A "super derecho" of violent thunderstorms left a more than 700-mile trail of destruction across the Midwest and mid-Atlantic on Friday, cutting power to millions and killing thirteen people.

More than 450 damaging wind reports were received by NOAA's Storm Prediction Center (SPC) as the derecho took roughly 12 hours to race from northern Indiana to the southern mid-Atlantic coast.

A derecho is defined as a widespread and long-lived wind storm that accompanies rapidly moving showers or thunderstorms. The most severe derechos are given the adjective "super."

A line of thunderstorms, 100 miles from tip-to-toe, rolled through the Washington. D.C. area Friday night packing winds of 50-to-80 mph, reports Topper Shutt of CBS D.C. affiliate WUSA-TV. The same clump of storms hit southeastern Ohio and West Virginia with hurricane force winds Friday evening.


Dericho in Spanish: right, justice, law, equity, honest 
Could Washington's brunt of the 'super dericho' be connected to the Supreme Court's Thursday decision?

25 states and 45 million people affected by US heat

Intense heat will continue to dominate many states Sunday and Monday from the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic westward to the Plains. Highs in the middle/upper 90s and low 100s will be widespread. This includes many of the locations left without power from Ohio to the Mid-Atlantic after Friday's destructive storms.


Storm leaves 3.9 million without power in Eastern US 

"This is the largest non-hurricane power outage in Virginia history," Gov. Bob McDonnell says. "Virginians need to be on guard and to be working together ... and to find out where the shelters are."


Heat Wave Smashing All-Time Records

The Washington, D.C. area has broken a record high temperature set almost 80 years ago. The National Weather Service says that just before 3 p.m., it was 104 degrees at Reagan National Airport just outside the city. That beats the record of 101 set in 1934.

High temperature records have been falling by the wayside so far this year, and the current heat wave now has more, including all-time records in jeopardy. Never mind highs near 100 degrees. The current heat wave has temperatures pushing 102, 105 even 108 degrees in portions of the Plains, Midwest, South and East.

"The men who have done the most for God in this world have been early on their knees. He who fritters away the early morning, its opportunity and freshness, in other pursuits than seeking God will make poor headway seeking Him the rest of the day. If God is not first in our thoughts and efforts in the morning, He will be in the last place the remainder of the day." - E. M. Bounds
