Last Sunday they were calling for winds around 30 mph when Ike blew through. When Ike actually showed up it brought hurricane strength winds around 75 mph instead. Trees were going down all over town dragging power lines with them. Transformers were blowing, it was just crazy! 301,000 people lost power in Louisville at the peak. There are still people without power but most everyone I know from work has their power back on now. We got our power on at work on Wednesday. It was very scary to have winds blowing around you like that, especially if you've never experienced that kind of stuff before. I can't imagine what people directly in the path must've and must be going through. WOW.
Hopefully this week everything will return to normal for everyone in the area and they'll all get their power back on.
