Argentinian Ice Wall Collapses – REUTERS Photos →(Please click here for the news)

Tourists look at the Perito Moreno glacier after the rupture of a massive ice wall near the city of El Calafate in the Patagonian province of Santa Cruz, southern Argentina, March 4, 2012. The glacier, a massive tongue of ice in the Santa Cruz province that covers 250 square kilometres (97 square miles), advances yearly into a lake, known as Lago Argentino. As Perito Moreno moves forward, it cuts off a river feeding the lake. Water builds up pressure and slowly undermines the ice, forming a tunnel until ice comes tumbling down. The phenomenon repeats itself at irregular intervals, with the last major ice falls occurring in 2008. REUTERS/Andres Arce (ARGENTINA - Tags: ENVIRONMENT TRAVEL)

2 11 2012

The National Weather Service’s Prediction Center issued a warning for a possible nor’easter, which may hit the Mid-Atlantic and New England regions as early as next Tuesday.

The storm will bring moderate rains and gusty winds in many of the same areas ravaged by the superstorm.

It is not a big storm like Hurricane Sandy but it may cause more problems for both New York and New Jersey.

On Sunday a powerful storm hit Alabama.

The storm produced a possible tornado that damaged the area.

This is a disaster.

At least 2 people were killed and about 100 people were injured.

It happened hours after tornadoes struck portions of Arkansas.

The storm cut down trees and power lines and damaged houses.

By Monday, almost 8,000 people across Arkansas were still without power.

A tornado is a big huge wind that is shaped like a torn and brings things away.

If you’re in a car driving and there’s a tornado some where around you, get out of your car.

Search for a drain and lie flat facing down and put your arms above your head.

Do not drive under any fly-over or highway.

In May 2011, more than 100 people were killed after a powerful tornado hit Joplin.
