directly above the center of the earth
10 inches of rain in 8 hours, 50mph winds with gusts to 75mph [I got picked up and tossed] . A 50 foot oak fell right behind the engine as were were going to a snapped power pole with wires in the roadway just 100 feet further. We had to cut the tree up to get back home. As we pulled into the station after being out in the rain and wind for 5 hours one of the big gusts hit and we watched this 150' Doug Fir blow over right behind the station just missing our propane tank
