Does Mother Nature Have Another July 13 Storm Up Her Sleeve?

If you believe in numbers you might want to prepare for a major storm to hit Quincy this Thursday. Why do I say that? Well, two years ago on July 13, 2015 a thunderstorm packing winds estimated in excess of 75 miles per hour rolled through Quincy around 6:20 that Monday evening. Anyone who was here remembers that one. Over 17,000 customers lost power around Quincy.

Quincy Mayor Kyle Moore declared a state of emergency at 7:30 p.m. Dozens of streets in Quincy were blocked by downed tree limbs along with downed power and cable lines and downed or broken utility poles and gas lines. Damage to homes and buildings was common throughout the city.  Power was out for several days for some people. That was in 2015.

Exactly one year ago to the day and just 3 hours shy of the exact hour, the Quincy area was again struck with extremely strong winds and thunderstorms. It was a storm that caused tree limbs to fall, power lines to come down leading to power outages and another round of cleanup operations. That was 2016.

So what will happen this Thursday afternoon (July 13, 2017)?  With high heat and humidity expected this week, we just might be ripe for yet another major storm. Keep your eye to the sky and ear to the radio.

Wouldn’t it be freakish if yet another storm hit us on July 13?  Here’s a look back at the storm of 2015.
