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.

Sounds like there might have been a meteotsunami along the New Jersey coast? That's one of those phenomena I've always found really fascinating.

And yeah, we're getting dumped on here. Not as bad as further upstate where the storms just stalled.

EDIT: Just saw from the local news that they've already gotten 6" in Frederick.

We had our first thunderstorm of the year today. Nothing to write home about but it's better than nothing. Still a month or two out from the usual period for any severe.

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.
