At least 23 people died as a "destructive" tornado and strong thunderstorms swept across Mississippi late Friday, leaving a trail of damage for more than 100 miles, local and federal authorities said. Search and rescue operations were underway in Sharkey and Humphreys counties, Mississippi's Emergency Management Agency said late Friday. The agency issued a series of tornado warnings in counties throughout the state. "Many in the MS Delta need your prayer and God's protection tonight," Gov. Tate Reeves said on Twitter. "We have activated medical support -- surging more ambulances and other emergency assets for those affected. Search and rescue is

Nighttime tornadoes are the worst. More deaths are possible as they search the destruction.

#1, I already knew L. Frank Baum was a prescient writer of futuristic novels because of his prediction in the Wizard of Oz series of the rise of a Wicked Witch of the West (Pelosi) and a charlatan behind the curtain (Obama/Biden/Soros?), but it is truly amazing how his genius mind conjured up the idea of never-before-experienced deadly columns of swirling wind over a century before this global warming thing wreaked havoc on Mississippi.

Condolences to all of those who lost loved ones. It's springtime in the U.S.A., and considering the upper pattern that has persisted for much of the winter and into the spring, we may very well see some tornadic outbreaks. Hopefully nothing like the Super Outbreak of 1974, or 2011, both of which occurred in April. Right now, and this is definitely subject to change, there could be more rough weather over the central U.S. Plains around 4/1, then again 4/4-4/5. Prognosticating for even one week in the future is tenuous, much less any further out, which SHOULD give many people pause in believing the accuracy of the global warming freaks who claim to know what will occur decades from now. There's a very low chance any of those predictions will be anywhere close to reality, as evidenced by their unanimous past failures. Btw poster #1, I love it when someone points out the enemedia's lying ways!

Way the weather is turning, I'm seriously considering a storm cellar...and I'm in S.E. Indiana...had an alert about a week ago when that kick butt storm came up from the south...but the dang things are so expensive..we have had two big ones in the Cincinnati area...30 miles from here...I watched one from my front porch come up from the Ohio river valley when I lived in Cincinnati years ago...and one devastated the city in I think it was 1913...

I question the editorial practice of putting sneer quotes, such as the ones on the word "destructive" . My work took me to Amory once, many years ago. It was a nice place.

I live in Oklahoma. April is usually tornado month.They have come close to me but thankfully never a direct hit. What I have noticed is the worst tornado's hit areas with lot of open space. Farmland, fields, no trees to speak of. If I lived in that town in Mississippi and I wanted to stay there, all housing being rebuilt must have a mandatory tornado shelter.

Gavin Newsom's shadow campaign for president 3 replies

Democratic governors don't tend to jump at the chance for a sit-down interview with Sean Hannity on Fox News. They also don’t tend to do tours of states they consider hostile to their own, like Florida. But then there's California's Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom . He prefers the national stage to dealing with the rampant dysfunction happening in his own state. And while Newsom claims he isn't running for president, the evidence suggests he actually is. True, Newsom may not be mounting a primary campaign against a sitting president of his own party who has announced he is running again. But

Astronomers know full well that the sun is very slowly getting brighter, and in a billion or so years time it will make Earth too hot to live on. One scientist is now proposing a radical solution that will let humans live on this planet for longer – physically moving it away from the sun. Albert Zijlstra, a professor of astrophysics at the University of Manchester, suggests shifting Earth further back from the sun by about three million miles. At the moment, Earth is orbiting the sun at a distance of 93 million miles (150 million km) but this needs

Over a two-week period in May, the wolverine was reported twice in Inyo National Forest and once in Yosemite National Park. Photos and video of the animal were analyzed by U.S. Forest Service experts, who confirmed it was the same creature due to its body proportions, coloration and movement.

America’s All Volunteer Force turns 50 this year. Since 1973, the U.S. military has, with rare exceptions, met its annual recruitment goals and improved the quality of the force. Now, however, it is mired in its worst recruiting stretch in history. Last year, the Army missed its recruiting goal by 25% and already predicts it will miss again in 2023. Ditto the Air Force and Navy. Officials cite numerous reasons for the shortfall: low unemployment, a smaller pool of young people qualified to serve, declining public confidence in the military and more. Whatever the reasons, these recruiting failures portend trouble for military readiness.

San Francisco may not be irretrievably lost as a viable metropolis — yet. But its status as one of America’s great cities is gone and it’s hard to see how the once-golden city can return to its dazzling glory as a center of art, architecture, and commerce. It’s not unprecedented in America. St. Louis, Cleveland, Buffalo — all were once thriving cities. All have since lost at least half their population, and those who remain have failed to regenerate the vibrancy, the energy of the early to mid-20th century. But what’s truly shocking about the demise of San Francisco has been the speed at which the city has fallen

'Why Does the IRS Have Guns': Joni Ernst

U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA) is again taking action against (literally) weaponized bureaucracy by leading the charge in the upper chamber to ensure the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is not using tax dollars from hardworking Americans to arm its employees — and going beyond just that to disarm the taxman and move the IRS' investigation division over to the Justice Department. According to an Open the Books report released last month, the IRS has spent more than $35 million since 2006 on firearms, ammunition, and tactical gear for its glorified and federally empowered accountant force, with some $10 million of that taxpayer-funded armament coming since just 2020.
