Surprised they didn't go on and bump the 60 to 60 hatched given the magnitude of reports (though that would place a good bit of media attention on the high risk, it'd have been the first of the year) but also kinda surprised they went 60% wind. Obviously seemed justified in retrospect but 60% probs on anything is quite rare.
Some impressive photos and videos going around this evening with wind damage and super threatening skies over the northeastern states.
Severe storm swept through festival grounds at Bayou St. John in New Orleans. Stages have been blown over and live electrical wires are littering the ground. Widespread flooding is also occurring in metro NOLA.
