Until June 29th, 2012, few had heard of the term "derecho." Now few will forget it.

A look back at some of the maps and weather features leading up to and following the June 29th 2012 derecho. Images come from a more comprehensive report on the event conducted by the National Weather Service in Blacksburg, Virginia. Read the full report here.

The tiny cluster of storms near Chicago would eventually become the derecho we would later experience the night of June 29, 2012.

There are currently no severe weather alerts.
