It used to not even register for me until Superstorm Sandy happened. There were a lot of reports of homeowners getting shafted on their insurance because it was the water not the wind. That’s a hard distinction to make in the middle of a storm.
About ten years ago we had that bad windstorm blow through Columbus, I think they called it a derecho. If there had been any rain involved, it would have been just like Sandy.
But that was also supposedly a once in a lifetime event.
