Derecho

Kentwood, MI (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Massive Shelf Cloud plowing through Grand Rapids, MI on July 11, 2011. I was stationed in Kentwood. This was ahead of a powerful Derecho that was blasting eastward at 70mph and producing wind gusts over 70mph. This was a huge storm, and I will include my storm chase videos from the day in the comments section below this image.

I have seen this type of cloud two times before in Arizona. Later on the news the cloud was referred to by the professionals as a Microburst. That is an amazing shot and I am pretty sure a strong wind came alone with it.
