Just saw that on Fox News.   :(

We had a fair bit of mainly cloud to cloud lightning this morning here around 8:00am our time.  My wind gusts only show 25mph peak but I was out on a customer's farm this afternoon West of town and I'd of guessed it to have been gusting 35mph+ during one of the passing rain bands.
