Saturday morning when the eye was touching down on the coast line about three hours drive away and we were locally experiencing steady 20-40mph winds with waves of rain, I put the portable recorder outside lightly sheltered from the elements and left it running.
27 August 2011, about 8:30am to 11am - 2hrs 28min 22sec of wind and rain noises. 356MB mp3. I didn't post the WAV file as it's 2.58GB.
Somewhere around 45 minutes from the end there should be a loud distant cracking ripping noise that is the sound of the tree from yesterday's pictures.
