#WUWA: Indianapolis Storms

Welcome back to my blog. This week has been an interesting week for me. Indianapolis has been experiencing some major thunderstorms that has knocked out electrical power throughout the city. There were over 600,000 homes without power this week. Our lights flickered on and off a couple of times. We lost power for about 30 minutes.

On top of the electrical outages the severe thunderstorms brought heavy rain that caused Flash Flooding all over the area. The strong winds knocked over trees, brick fences, and more. Needless to say, it's been a very messy week for our city. After the storms, came the cleanup efforts. I am so glad there aren't any more storms due to roll into our neck of the woods.

Thankfully, our apartment isn't flooded. The hail and wind didn't cause any damages. We only lost electric for thirty minutes. There's a couple at our church who were without power for five days. FIVE DAYS! Can you imagine not having power for five days? I've seen major intersections so flooded that traffic had to be diverted. 

This week was a week I will never forget.
