Such is the case near Guy, Arkansas (near Conway). The […]

Hey, Megi! How Low Can You Go?

Will Super Typhoon Megi go into the record books as the cyclone with the lowest pressure ever recorded? It’s close, but it’s not likely.

Russia: Wild Weather

Pink snow and tornadoes, those are the reports coming in from Russia today. The Moscow suburb of Krasnozavodsk experienced a rare winter tornado, as reported by MosNews.com.
