lightning
A severe storm Tuesday night in South Carolina spawned at least two tornadoes and killed a man getting out of his car with a lightning strike.

Sirmorio Davis, 32, was struck by lightning in a Chester neighborhood and died a short time later at the hospital, the Chester County Coroner's Office said.

Several severe storms moved across the northern part of the state Tuesday evening. The strongest storm spawned an EF-2 tornado with winds estimated at 115 mph (185 kph) that moved from Great Falls into western Lancaster County, the National Weather Service said.

Earlier, that storm dropped an EF-1 tornado with winds of 100 mph (160 kph) south of Chester, forecasters said.

Through history we have seen blockades that always lead to food insecurity and here we are again, a rhyme in history that we have seen time immemorial. Cut off of the global food supply beginning with protein first. You have seen headlines shouting food shortages and meat packing plants closing. Its true, its here and you may want to get a plan C flushed out.

Residents across Northern New England woke up to early May snow on Tuesday, the first of several rounds of frozen precipitation before a colder blast expected Mother's Day weekend.

On Wednesday, a low-pressure system moving from the Midwest into the Mid-Atlantic brought rain and snow to parts of Pennsylvania and Western New York, according to Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean.

"As you go across the Great Lakes and the interior Northeast, we actually have wind chills in the freezing range," Dean said on "Fox & Friends."

Other snow showers were reported in parts of the White Mountains in New Hampshire, in areas of northern Vermont and parts of Maine.

Floods kill 16 in Somalia, affect over 200,000 others

floods
At least 16 people have died while more than 200,000 others have been affected by torrential rains and riverine floods since the Gu (April-June) rains started in Somalia a month ago, UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said on Wednesday.

OCHA said 10 other people are missing due to floods and at least 2,000 farms have been swamped by water.

"The rains are likely to increase the risk of water-borne diseases," OCHA warned in its latest report on the impact of floods in Somalia.

The forecast by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) indicates that the moderate to high flood risk is likely to persist at least through mid-May.

Powerful magnitude 6.8 earthquake shakes Indonesia

quake
A powerful earthquake shook islands in eastern Indonesia on Wednesday evening, but no damage or injuries were expected.

The quake measured a preliminary magnitude 6.8 and was centered below the sea at a depth of 107 kilometers (67 miles), the U.S. Geological Survey said. It was located 205 kilometers (128 miles) northwest of the nearest city, Saumlaki, it said.

The earthquake triggered moderate shaking and was unlikely to cause injuries or economic losses, USGS said.

Indonesia, a vast archipelago of 260 million people, is frequently struck by earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and tsunamis because of its location on the "Ring of Fire," an arc of volcanoes and fault lines in the Pacific Basin.

SOTT Earth Changes Summary - April 2020: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs

April 2020 brought us some chilly Earth Changes surprises, from record snow in parts of the US and Europe, to huge hail in Asia and the Middle East.
secs4202
An arctic system blasted Canada, the Midwest, Northeast and Southern US, causing power outages in Manitoba, and Maine, leaving hundreds of thousands without power. Snow records were broken in Colorado (30 inches), South Dakota (15 inches), and Iowa (11 inches).

Snow also fell in Dushanbe, Tajikistan, for the first time in 26 years... in spring!

Global food production not only has been disrupted by the economy-killing plandemic, severe cold and frost also destroyed crops across Europe and the US.

Hail also got nasty around the globe this month, killing 5 people, ravaging crops, and damaging 6,000 homes in Vietnam. Hailstorms also left 4,2000 people homeless in Tripura, India, and covered in white parts of Saudi Arabia, Iran, and China... with flooding added to the mix as it melted.

Severe storms, hail, tornadoes, and strong winds ripped through parts of the Midwest and South US, causing damage to many homes, especially in Indiana and Arkansas.

While all this water got dumped around the world, the Czech Republic is facing the worst drought in 500 years.
