Hurricane Elvis

10 August 2003

The straight-line windstorm that hit Memphis, TN on July 22, 2003 was referred to today as ”Hurricane Elvis.” Take a look at this slideshow for a few of the photographs that illustrate why 338,000 utility customers were without power immediately after the storm. It took over two weeks for everyone to get power restored.

My home was without power for over thirteen days. Later today, I’ll post some neighborhood photos that show the power of the storm.
