As you can see from the map above, which shows cities in black, nearly every major metropolitan area in the heart (and east coast) of the country is under a severe thunderstorm threat today. I tabulated the major metropolitan centers only, and came up with a number of 70 million city folks who are in the Slight Risk area, with 11.5 million in the Moderate or High Risk areas (where tornadoes are most likely to occur).

The water beetle invasion captured on amateur youtube footage shows the large black beetles swarming around lights and dropping to the footpath on The Esplanade last night.
Griffith University entomologist Professor Clyde Wild said he had no definitive explanation for the rare phenomenon.''I've never seen swarms of these like this before, why they are at the beach front escapes any explanation I can think of,'' Prof Wild said.
''You might see two or three on any given night - this is literally thousands.
''They haven't come out of the sea, they live in fresh water and live on larvae, or eating other insects.''
Prof Wild said he would be less surprised if the invasion had occurred in areas that had recently flooded.
''If there was masses of flowing water, a lot of habitat, it would make more sense.
''But it hasn't been that wet on the Gold Coast so it's a very curious phenomenon.
Including damage to crops which are in turn eaten by animals and turn up in milk and cheese...
Coast moved 8 feet, earth's rotation sped up 1.6 microseconds.
It "...caused a rupture 186 miles long and 93 miles wide in the sea floor 80 miles off the eastern coast of Japan. It happened 15 miles beneath the sea floor. The force of the quake was so strong that it moved the island of Honshu 8 feet to the east, said USGS geophysicist Ken Hudnut. It sped up the Earth's rotation by 1.6 microseconds, according to NASA.
The fish are congregating along the shore in shallow water and using up the O2, but it doesn't mention WHY they are congregating along the shore in shallow water.
Another fairy tale: BP says it is working on a "fix" by the end of July:
