OUTSTANDING DOCUMENTARY ON THE IOWA DERECHO.
Six months ago the costliest thunderstorm in United States history unleashed a trail of destruction in Iowa and Illinois equivalent to a Category 4 hurricane or an EF3 tornado. The latest damage estimates are 13 billion dollars as clean-up continues in the hardest hit areas.
My former weather team at KGAN TV in Cedar Rapids, led by meteorologists Nick Stewart and Rebecca Kopleman, have put together an hour long video documentary entitled, The Iowa Derecho- In Their Own Words. It tells the story of the storm in the words of those who experienced it first hand with videos and personal accounts. It's a fine piece of work and does a great job of portraying the power, fear, and drama associated with this remarkable weather event. Nice job Nick and Rebecca, proud of your efforts!
The second printing of my new book Derecho, Iowa's Inland Hurricane has just arrived and can be purchased below. However they are going fast and if you are interested in having the most authoritative account of this extreme event you need to act now. Don't miss this opportunity to own the weather story of a generation. You can order yours at derechobook.com See the book endorsements below

A SECOND PRINTING OF MY NEW BOOK IS ON THE WAY...
*This book has been quite the talk with the Iowa State Library promoting it. I have never seen the State Library promote any books like this unless it was an award winner of particular interest to libraries. Hopefully your sales are through the roof!

*I ordered one of your Derecho books about the storm in Cedar Rapids, IA back in December. I love it! I had also bought one that the Cedar Rapids Gazette sold. Your book by far is so much better, you have a lot more pictures and it just tells more of the story. Thank you for putting a wonderful keepsake together! Do you have any left? If so can you tell me how to get at least one more.
Thank you so much! Penny Brecke
*Hi Terry and Carolyn!
Thank you for my book, the kind dedication and wonderful job on the book warmed my heart!! Loved all the info-great job Terry! Carolyn the stories brought tears to my eyes. I have to admit it was difficult to read at first-reliving that day, but joy also with the way you wrote them in such good faith! We are living in town as our house is still gutted. Work is slow but progressing. The damage was far greater than we thought, but it will be glorious again one day! Love and prayer.
*I received my book yesterday (just in time for Christmas). Thank you for all the hard work it took to put it together and trying so hard to get this book out. My husband will love it. Enjoyed your Christmas Video.
*Got the book today and am reading it now! Very well done. Thanks.
