Storm Recovery from May 8, 2009 Derecho
On May 8, 2009, Carbondale Illinois and surrounding areas were hit by what the The National Weather Service in Paducah, KY classified the storm as a "derecho." In weather terms, a derecho, from a Spanish word meaning straight, is a widespread and relatively lengthy windstorm accompanied by a band of fast-moving showers or thunderstorms. A derecho sometimes has a bookend vortex, or comma head, on the north side of the system. According to the NWS, the May 8 storm system had an unusually large bookend vortex, some 30 to 40 nautical miles, or about 34 to 46 miles, in diameter. One fatality and numerous injuries resulted from the storm. Trees and power lines were toppled and structures damaged in the large storm path. Gov. Pat Quinn declared Franklin, Gallatin, Jackson, Randolph, Saline and Williamson counties as state disaster areas, and the application process for a federal disaster declaration is under way. Recovery costs are projected to run into the millions.
