Hurricane Ike took a shot at Ohio

On Sunday, September 14, 2008 Hurricane Ike took a shot at Ohio. The rain was north and west of us, but the winds were amazing. In our area winds were up to 78 miles / hour. There was significant damage to homes and trees down everywhere. Check out this video:

In Ohio, over 2.5MM people were without power at some point including many of my friends and coworkers. I was driving to my companies plant in Hillsboro and took this picture of crop damage.

It may not be easy to see but the corn was blown over. I hope it is many years before we have another Hurricane in Ohio - and where is my 'I survived Ike in Ohio' t-shirt?
