Radar Loops Of Derecho Event

Adding to the images that have been posted on the derecho throughout the past 24 hours, here are a couple of loops of the storm complex on radar. The first, below, is an updated loop of one that was initially posted on YouTube yesterday.

The second is a radar loop that shows the Mid Atlantic and Midwest in one singular graphic with the derecho moving through on Friday afternoon and evening, based on radar imagery from the College of DuPage in Illinois.

As of this morning, over 100,000 are still without power in South Jersey, including over 65,000 in Atlantic County alone.  New Jersey Governor Chris Christie stated in a press conference yesterday that most power should be back on by the 4th...but some have speculated that it may take a week or ten days for all to get their power restored.  Three fatalities have been reported in South Jersey from the storm -- two children and a boater according to the Press of Atlantic City.
