    WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A suspected tornado that barreled through parts of Kansas damaged multiple buildings, injured several people and left more than 6,500 people without power, officials said Saturday. Officials said the suspected twister moved though parts of southeast Wichita and Andover on Friday evening. Andover Fire Chief Chad Russell said during a news conference early Saturday morning that 50 to 100 buildings were damaged in Sedgwick County, though it was not immediately known how many buildings were damaged in Andover. Russell said in some neighborhoods homes “were completely blown away.” Officials said only a few injuries had been reported. In Sedgwick County, three people were injured, including one woman who suffered serious injuries. Russell said no injuries had been reported in Butler County, but a secondary assessment would be conducted Saturday morning. Russell said that while it was not immediately known how many buildings had been damaged, more than 900 structures were in the suspected tornado’s path. He said some neighborhoods were “damaged enough that houses were completely blown down” and cited areas that suffered “very bad damage.”...
    Multiple rockets reportedly struck two schools and several houses in Ukraine's Chernihiv region Thursday — and a car's dashcam recorded the entire thing. Twenty-two bodies have reportedly been recovered from the site. The dashcam footage, obtained by the New York Post, shows a huge blast occurring ahead of the car, with at least six rockets headed toward the city. The video also shows civilians emerging from smoke after the attack. The region's governor, Viacheslav Chaus, initially reported nine dead, but the number has been updated as more bodies were discovered. The blast also left several injured. "Many apartment buildings were damaged, windows were broken, walls, roofs, balconies were damaged, walls and ceilings were destroyed in some places,” he wrote in an online post titled "Half an hour ago, Russian troops launched a missile strike on a high-rise residential area in the city center."

    WINFIELD, Ala. (AP) — Homes and buildings were damaged and trees were blown down as a line of intense thunderstorms rolled across several Southern states, authorities said. There were no immediate reports of injuries. In the west Alabama town of Winfield, Wednesday’s storms damaged buildings in the downtown area, authorities said. Building walls collapsed and roofs were lying in roads, Winfield Police Chief Brett Burleson told WBRC-TV. “Downtown Winfield is a dangerous area,” the Marion County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement on social media. “There are confirmed live power lines down.” Police ordered people to stay out of the downtown area as officers and sheriff’s deputies worked to assess the damage in the town, located about 75 miles (120 kilometers) northwest of Birmingham. “If you don’t have to come down here, don’t,” Burleson told WBRC. “There are lines down, glass in the road, nails.” In northeastern Alabama’s Etowah County, an emergency manager reported that a pole barn was destroyed and at least two homes damaged. The storms prompted tornado watches and warnings Wednesday for parts of several states, including...
    By McKenzie Prillaman, Correspondent A new computer program powered by artificial intelligence takes mere minutes to determine whether homes and buildings have been destroyed by wildfires once the smoke has cleared. Developed by scientists at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo and Stanford University, DamageMap evaluates the destruction by scrutinizing post-wildfire aerial and satellite images. Residents of the Santa Cruz Mountains who were evacuated during the CZU Lightning Complex fire in the summer of 2020 say that having such a program would have relieved them of a lot of stress and anguish. “I spent days thinking, ‘My house could be burning right now,’” said Lisa Smith Beasley, a Boulder Creek resident who was ordered to leave her home during the devastating event. Beasley’s home survived the flames. But she and other residents of the greater Bay Area often waited weeks to hear from authorities whether their homes had made it. Andrew Fricker, a spatial ecologist at Cal Poly who co-developed DamageMap, said the program should drastically reduce that waiting period. Once fully developed, it would be available free to the public...
    A large explosion in Mexico has left at least one dead and 15 people injured as well as widespread damage to dozens of buildings.  A gas leak reported at 1:34 a.m. local time in the city of Puebla prompted the evacuation of around 2,000 people within half a mile. The first explosion occurred at 2:50 p.m., with two further explosions shortly after.  Destroyed homes and vehicles are seen after a series of explosions at a neighborhood in Puebla, Mexico, Sunday, Oct. 31, 2021. Officials say an illegal tap on a gas line is apparently to blame for the early morning explosions that killed at least one person and injured more than a dozen, destroying dozens of homes and causing the evacuation of some 2000 persons. (AP Photo/Pablo Spencer) "It is regrettable that one person has lost his/her life so far, and fifteen more are injured, due to the explosion of a Pemex pipeline in Puebla," Mexico President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said in a statement Sunday. "Pemex has the fire under control and will ensure that families evicted...

    A magnitude 5.8 earthquake has rocked Melbourne and demolished part of a building on famous Chapel St, with tremors felt as far as NSW and Tasmania.  The quake hit at 9.15am near the small town of Mansfield, 180km north-east of Melbourne. It was 10km deep, according to Geoscience Australia. The quake was followed by two 4.0 and 3.1 magnitude aftershocks 18 and 39 minutes later - both within 10km of the original tremors. The earthquake is the biggest Victoria has experienced since European settlement (1834) and there will be more aftershocks, a seismologist told ABC Radio Melbourne.  Tremors were felt as far away as Tasmania, South Australia and some parts of Sydney.  Pictures emerged of a Bettys Burgers fast food restaurant partially collapsed on Chapel St in Windsor in Melbourne's inner-city.  The burger chain later said in a statement that there was no-one inside the building at the time and all staff were safe.  Pictures have emerged of a Betty's Burgers restaurant partially collapsed on Chapel St in Melbourne's inner-city after a magnitude 5.8 earthquake Emergency and rescue...

            by Catherine Smith  Left-wing protests in Portland have caused roughly $2.3 million in damage to federal buildings since they broke out over the summer. Portland was the epicenter of summer protests which included frequent riots, vandalism and clashes with law enforcement.  The two months of near-nightly unrest centered on a federal courthouse downtown. President Trump urged the city’s liberal Mayor Ted Wheeler to allow him to deploy federal troops to help quell protests, but the mayor denied the president’s offer. Protesters and rioters gathered around the Mark O. Hatfield U.S. Courthouse and in the city almost every night for weeks, feuding with police and counter-protesters and led theTrump administration to send federal officers to fortify the building after repeated vandalism. The nightly standoffs with police involved graffiti, fires, broken windows and commercial grade firecrackers, as well as Molotov cocktails. Cleanup at the courthouse and four other government buildings has cost more than $2 million, U.S. Attorney for Oregon Billy J. Williams told Oregon Live. And the total could continue to rise with repairs still underway. According to Fox...
