Earlier today, approximately 17 million Facebook Live users tuned in to an awe-inspiring video of nature at its fiercest: a massive, swirling supercell storm. In the sense that “live” means “actually happening right now,” however, this stream was 100 percent fake.
Greetings, my garrulous guttersnipes! (I feel like I’m turning into a Batman ‘66 villain here.) This week: Those Game of Thrones spin-off series! How to improve the Iron Fist TV show’s story! Whether Stormtroopers get paid! And a question so weird, I couldn’t stop answering it! (You’ll know it when you see it.)
Ororo Munroe would never get caught looking this tacky.
Post-tropical Cyclone Hermine took an unexpected veer east, which means that some of the worst of the rains and winds could happen out to sea if it continues on its trajectory. But even on that path, it could still send us a wave of storm surge floods.
A huge storm drenched Phoenix and flooded the streets earlier this week. That’s already bizarre, but the weirdest thing to come out of that storm that happens once a century in the desert is this floating manhole cover. The 150-pound metal plate looks like it’s kind of dancing? Or at least, it’s bouncing around the…
Check out this a microburst near Phoenix, AZ, sas hot from Phoenix Sky Harbor international airport. According to Bryan Snider, the photographer who captured this terrorstorm sweeping across the rapidly-darkening Arizona sky, there was flash flooding in the area. Oh yeah, and lightning, high winds, and hail.
Yemen is in for a mess as last week’s rapidly-growing Cyclone Chapala continues to hold it together while approaching the dry desert air. If it makes landfall, it’s anticipated to be the largest storm to hit the country since we started recording them.
One of the most powerful storms ever is hitting populated land right now, and none of the major media networks have live coverage. Let’s assemble the best of social media from the storm, and keep it live right here.
Dallas Nagata White is a photographer based out of Honolulu, Hawaii, with a particular interest in pop culture. She recently completed a photoshoot titled Heroines Over Honolulu. The island state makes for a great backdrop for these characters.
Even as a little kid who wanted lightning to strike me so I could get superpowers, I’ve always loved seeing the electric bolts get speared down from the clouds. Seeing lightning was always cool, it was the lagging and crackling thunder that was the scary part of any storm. That’s why this video of slow motion…
Jada Pinkett Smith really wants to be part of a second Suicide Squad. Ron Perlman still wants a third Hellboy. Plus, see Ghostbusters’ Ecto-1 in action, new clips from Ant-Man, Sam Raimi talks Ash vs Evil Dead, and our first look at Damien and the Sherlock Christmas special. It’s time for Spoilers!
A severe storm front in Texas spawned many inches of rain, multiple tornadoes, and hail huge enough to smash windshields last week, according to the National Weather Service. (Thankfully, no injuries were reported.) This baseball-sized hail fell April 26 near Rising Star, 150 miles southwest of Dallas.
We have seen lots of impressive images and time-lapse video of the snow wall that buried entire cities in upstate New York but this is the first drone video filmed behind it, taken in West Seneca by Jim Grimaldi. A new lake effect, powered by arctic winds from the north pole and Siberia, is now hitting the area again.
Since discovering yesterday that there's a homeopathic vaccine for Ebola that involves using an actual sample of the virus, I've been re-listening to Tim Minchin's incredible nine-minute song/beat poem Storm, one of the best and most concise refutations of bad hippie science that you're ever likely to witness.
Earlier this week, an Air Europa Airbus A330 travelling from Madrid to Buenos Aires flew directly into a rather serious hailstorm, receiving serious damage to the nose and both windshields.
Whenever anybody asks about black women in comics, the immediate response is to bring up Storm. But Storm isn't the only black woman to rock superpowers and a costume. Here are 20 other black female characters in superhero comics who deserve more love and attention.
This video captured on a beach in Novosibirsk, Siberia, looks like a scene from a movie about the end of the world. People were enjoying a perfect sunny day—with temperatures of 99F (37C)—when bullet-sized hail started strafing the beach while everyone were running for their lives in panic.
A pair of tornadoes touched down within a mile of each other in northeast Nebraska today. While multiple tornadoes spawning from a single storm are common, having an independent pair of strong twisters touch down this close together is rare and downright devastating.
