There is an elevated risk for a Derecho today in Lower Michigan, Northern Indiana and Northeast Ohio.
What exactly is a Derecho?
It's large-scale weather event that concerns winds and can cause a lot of damage — more than that of a tornado and even a hurricane, said Storm Shield Meteorologist Jason Meyers. It's a big risk.
Damaging winds and large hail are the main threats.
Meyers tells what exactly a Derecho is (and it's rarity) in this archived video from one year ago when one was expected in multiple states.
