Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

Baseball-size hail pelts Nebraska; forecasters warn of flooding

Perhaps the most dramatic scenes played out in Omaha, where nearby Eppley Airfield saw 5.3 inches of rain, a record for June 3 and any other day of the month, forcing the airport to close for several hours. In the city, police and firefighters rescued people from flooded homes along Ames Avenue, between 16th and 22nd Streets.
When the weather is hotter and drier, fires are more likely to ensue. Makes sense – and with climate change now taken as fact rather than scientific scaremongering, it's only logical that global warming is causing more wildfires. And now the math is in. Scientists don't like to be pushed to the wall and say that a specific conflagration was caused by global warming, let alone by man-made climate change. But as smoke spreads across the skies of California, the trend is clear. Even the governor of California says it straight: California is on the front line of climate change, Jerry Brown told ABC, predicting that 2014 would be the worst year yet for fires.
