Severe Weather Continues For Third Day (PHOTOS)

July 3, 2014

Severe weather continued for a third day Wednesday as storms with high winds moved through Cleveland, Ohio into northwestern Pennsylvania. A tornado watch is in effect for the state line between North Dakota and South Dakota.

Severe weather struck eastern Nebraska on Monday and Tuesday evening, spawning tornadoes and killing at least two people, including a five-year-old.

The hardest-hit Monday afternoon was Pilger, Nebraska, which suffered catastrophic damage to homes and businesses all over the town. Cars were tossed like toys and trees were stripped of their bark – both signs of a devastating tornado.

Damage has also been reported in nearby towns, including Sioux Falls, South Dakota, which has been hit with widespread flooding after record rainfall, according to the Argus Leader.

The severe weather, including tornadoes, did not take a break on Tuesday. A dangerous supercell that rolled through northeastern Nebraska produced large, slow-moving tornadoes Tuesday night. Storm chasers spotted a large wedge tornado near Coleridge, Nebraska.

Photos of the storms and subsequent damage are above, and for more information, be sure to check our state-by-state rundown and track the severe storms as they flare up.

Air Pollution and Dust Credited WIth Weakening Hurricanes Irene and Katrina

Hurricane Irene of August 2011 was predicted to hit North Carolina as a Cat 3, but hit as a Cat 1. New research gives partial credit for Irene’s unexpected weakening to dust and air pollution sucked in by the storm. These particles (collectively called aerosols) invigorated the outer spiral bands and outer eyewall, and kept the outer portions of the storm strong at the expense of the inner core.

The Great California Storm of April 19-23, 1880

Could a single big late–season storm have a significant impact on the California drought? A 'Hail Mary' storm event? Normally by this time of the year (April 10th) California would have already received at least 90% of its rainy-season precipitation total and any additional rain or snowfall would have little impact so far as the current drought is concerned. However, back in late April 1880, one of the most intense storms ever to pound the state occurred. Here are the details.

What the 5th IPCC Assessment Doesn't Include

By Angela Fritz
September 27, 2013

Melting permafrost has the potential to release an additional 1.5 trillion tons of carbon into the atmosphere, and could increase our global average temperature by 1.5°F in addition to our day-to-day human emissions. However, this effect is not included in the IPCC report issued Friday morning, which means the estimates of how Earth's climate will change are likely on the conservative side.
