{11:66} So when Our command came, We saved Salih and those who believed with him, by mercy from Us, and [saved them] from the disgrace of that day. Indeed, it is your Lord who is the Powerful, the Exalted in Might.

I suggest,
{11:66} So when Our command came, We saved Saalih and those who believed with him, by mercy from Us, and [saved them] from the disgrace of that day. Verily, it is your Lord who is the Strong, Unbeatable One.

Quote:
{11:67} And the shriek seized those who had wronged, and they became within their homes [corpses] fallen prone

Excellent translation!

Quote:
{11:68} As if they had never prospered therein. Unquestionably, Thamud denied their Lord; then, away with Thamud.

Again, the language in this verse is particularly wrathful, so I suggest,
{11:68} As if they had never prospered therein. Hear ye, Thamood denied their Lord; Hear ye, away with Thamood.
