Reuters reported that a record-breaking cold gripped the eastern United States while an icy winter storm crippled the nation’s central states and then plowed into the mid-Atlantic, dumping snow and forcing federal offices in Washington, D.C. to close on Tuesday.

It was reported that the new storm will be followed by another arctic front, bringing frigid cold to the eastern United States by Thursday or Friday.

A powerful blizzard struck Boston and surrounding New England on Tuesday, bringing as much as three feet of snow and causing coastal flooding.

High tides breached a seawall in Marshfield, about 30 miles (50 km) south of Boston, damaging 11 homes.

Snow was forecast to keep falling into early Wednesday in eastern New England, possibly setting a record snowfall in Boston.

The heaviest snowfall was recorded outside Boston, with 36 inches (91.4 cm) in Lunenburg, Massachusetts, and 35 inches (88.9 cm) reported in Auburn, according to the National Weather Service.

A massive explosion hit the West Fertilizer Co. plant some 18 miles north of Waco, Texas on Wednesday, April 17, 2013.

CNN reported that:

“The Wednesday night blast shook houses 50 miles away and measured as a 2.1-magnitude seismic event, according to the United States Geological Survey”.

At least 160 people were injured in this massive blast.

So far they are not sure how many people were killed but at least up to 15 people were reportedly killed including two emergency medical personnel.

West Mayor Tommy Muska forewarned on Wednesday night:

“There are a lot of people that got hurt. There are a lot of people that will not be here tomorrow.”

This explosion is far more greater than the ones in Boston during the marathon on April 15, 2013. (Please click the here for the photos and videos of the Boston Marathon tragedy)

“It was like a nuclear bomb went off,” said West Mayor Tommy Muska.

It is said that 10 to 15 buildings have been totally demolished and probably 50 homes were heavily damaged.

People expect more to be found dead because this is a very big one and some people might still be trapped in collapsed buildings.

Yahoo News reported that, Texas Public Safety Department spokesman D.L. Wilson said about half the town, about eight to 10 blocks, had been evacuated and that “we might even have to evacuate on the other side of town” if winds shifted.

The cause of the explosion is not immediately known.

It is really sad and scary to see another huge explosion just two days after the ones in Boston.

The bomb explosions in Boston during the 117th Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013 had killed 3 people while more than 170 others were injured. (Please click here for the photos)

It is very sad to read about another mass killing in the United States of America.

The victims were eight years old Martin Richard, of Boston, twenty-nine years old Krystle Campbell, of Medford and a Chinese lady identified by the Shenyang Evening News as Lu Lingzi.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation or FBI investigating the area found a mangled pressure cooker and a torn black bag that the FBI said were part of a bomb.

Associated Press reported that FBI believes that at least one bomb and possibly both were built using pressure cookers as the superstructure, black powder or gunpowder as the explosive and ball bearings and nails as additional shrapnel.

It has evidence that indicates one of the bombs that exploded in the Boston Marathon was contained in a pressure cooker with nails and ball bearings, and it was hidden in a backpack, the FBI said.

Anyway they still didn’t know who did it and why.

FBI agent in charge in Boston, Richard DesLauriers said there had been no claim of responsibility for the attack.

It is very irresponsible for the ones who did this because they killed and hurt lots of innocent people for nothing.

I wonder why must people did this and for what reason?

If they are angry about something or demanded something, they should not use violence and caused so much trouble and sadness to other people.

If everybody who are unhappy about something, uses violence to get what they wanted, the world will not be a safe place to live in anymore.

Two wrongs will not make one right.

The people who did this must be adults because I do not think that children could do all these.

It is sad that adults who should be caring, responsible, protective, careful and ‘should behave like an adult’ have the heart to do all these for whatever reason.

There is no fool like and old fool, an adult should behave like an adult and protect the children and not hurt them.

I’m very sad and sorry for the victims, their families and friends especially to the family of Martin Richard, the youngest who was killed.

I hope that the adults in this world will learn to be responsible and behave like one.

Do not be proud of violence and street demonstrations because it will only destroy us all.

Sandy: The Largest Storm To Hit The US?

28 10 2012

Large waves generated by Hurricane Sandy crash into Jeanette’s Pier in Nags Head, N.C., Saturday, Oct. 27, 2012 as the storm moves up the east coast.

Hurricane Sandy had killed at least 66 people in the Caribbean islands, including 51 in Haiti.

Forecasters said that Sandy is likely to make U.S. landfall on Monday night between Delaware and the New York/New Jersey area.

Sandy will meet two other winter storms and becomes a rare, hybrid “super storm” created by an Arctic jet stream wrapping itself around a tropical storm.

The monstrous Hurricane Sandy is going to be a very big storm when it hit the United States.

Officials warned millions of people in coastal areas to get out of the way.

It will effect the third of the country from the East Coast to the Great Lakes and 50 to 60 millions of people with heavy of rains, high winds and heavy snow. 

Sandy could cause lots of damage because it could hit big cities like Boston, New York, Baltimore, Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia.

This is a disaster.
