The Derecho storm cutting a trail of devastation across Midwest America is an example of how we are all at nature‘s mercy.

A derecho storm is a vast and usually long lasting wind with associated thunderstorms which runs in a straight line, the name meaning ‘straight’ in Spanish.

How often do we see events like this follow on from others, adding ‘insult to injury’? We can only pray that the threat to life is minimalised.
