Hope those five that were hurt recover OK.

That could have been very nasty.

I live not far from were the fesitival is held. I think one person was badly hurt and the rest had minor injuries. The wind gusts were incredible but just only for a few minutes. It rained hard for about 45 minutes. I think all the spectators left in quite an orderly fashion and thank goodness there were police and paramedics on the scene. It was kind of sad to hear about since the weather for all of the festival has been pretty good this year. Buddy Guy was very good I heard from people who attended his show.
