For Reference:
A macroburst is a convective downdraft with an affect outflow
area of at least 2 1/2 miles wide and peak winds lasting between
5 and 20 minutes. Intense macrobursts may cause tornado-force
damage of up to EF3 intensity. Straight-line winds are generally
any wind that is not associated with rotation, used mainly to
differentiate them from tornadic winds.
