    Did anyone else get hit with the damaging windstorm on Sunday afternoon? I live in Indiana and we got a lot of down tree limbs as well as up-rooted trees. Kentucky has declared state of emergency in some parts with Kentucky National Guard deployed. We had 85 MPH winds, thought my F-150 was gonna turn over in the yard. I got blown off the road twice in the truck.

    I was just wondering how much of the country got high winds off 'IKE' or was it just in this area.

    We had some wind Sunday night, but nothing as bad as you describe. Lots of branches and some trees down. About 6000 people lost power.

    You should have been here when Ike hit landfall as a CAT 2.

    I live in Michigan. Saturday it was 70 and 3 inches of rain. 4 F-O tornadoes hit the Klamazoo area mostly west. Kind of a surprise. Some damage to business. My brother is waiting to go to Houston as he works for a company that distributes power line goods and meters to electric co-ops.
