If anyone is interested, here is a good explanation of the destructive storms that roared across the country and left hundreds of thousands without power in the midst of an intense heatwave. Mike, is "derecho" ("straight" in Spanish) a term also used to describe the powerful dust storms out there? I know that "habu" is used, although I first encountered that word as the name of a very poisonous snake on Okinawa.
