    A nice visual to what they say: "It's not the hurricane's wind that is dangerous, it's what is being tossed about by that wind."

    Wind can do some scary stuff. This is a 2x4 puncturing a brick facade from a tornado

    I did not take this picture. It was sent to me by my sister, who got it from a friend living on St Martin.

    Edit: ... or so I believe. I saw other sources claiming something else.

    I’m confident you wouldn’t even feel that if it hit you.

    Back Story: the older tree bullied the younger trees for years, until one day years later revenge was had.

    This almost belongs cross-posted in /r/nevertellmetheodds or something. For that board to have been blown that low to the ground (and not into the ground) long enough to get that kind of kinetic energy, at an orientation and angle precise enough to go straight through the tree trunk without turning it into splinters or leaving just a stump, is equally impressive

    This is why when I see the Weather Channel assholes doing their broadcast I am shocked.

    This could happen with their neck and a twig.

    TWC, do it from under an overpass or in a vestibule, we all get the picture, winds are high.
