I'd not heard that term used before today.  At least they have a name for it that can be printed.  When such storms passed through when I lived up north, everyone had names for them that shouldn't be used in public.

It actually wasnt that bad in Lima.We mainly got heavy rain with probably 50-60 MPH wind gust with some lightning and few rumbles of thunder. It was a slight bow echo that caused most of the damage.  However a few near-by areas got hit with some EF-0 tornadoes. Those are classified for rotational winds between 65 and 85 MPH. The areas that were hit the worst were mainly rural areas with lots of open fields. Although it was never stated if those EF-0's actually touched down. I remember the derecho that hit last June, It split my very old apple tree in half. That was one very crazy storm. The conditions yesterday didnt come nowhere near the same conditions as last year that caused that crazy storm.. A majority of the storm cells that came my direction ahead of the bow echo either dissipated or went to the northeast of Lima..

We didn't get hit very bad at all, not like last year. It was great for business, several phone systems got hit by lightning.

It was looking pretty ominous down here, but it was such a thin formation the rain wasn't that bad.  The wind working the tree limbs knocked out a lot of residential power.
