This may not be very different for those of you who live in hurricane land but for us 92 MPH "official" straight-line winds are out of the norm. Yes we get tornadoes here with excessively higher speeds in them but this is unusual. No damage to my house; some damage to other things like trees. Mature trees took a hit-power outages obviously. One fell on a house in town...ruined it--the house too. :D These pics were taken at our cemetery. Tough old cedars were no match for this blow on June 27.

That is definitely breezy. Lots of breeze damage.

Living 30 miles straight south of you Art we got lucky. Strong winds yes but nothing like you got nor Newton then Wichita. We had maybe peak of 60 mph. Numerous power poles down along HWY 50 just west of Newton then large transmission lines down across HWY 50 closing the highway and sending detoured traffic through town.

One of my Dillons/Kroger stores, 13th and West, I cover for my sales route lost EVERYTHING frozen as well as ALL the meat and dairy products due to the power outage. Has to be well over $100K in loss. Not to mention lost sales storewide for the store was closed all day Friday. Dillons carries insurance for such things. I don't believe Walmart does though.
