On Monday, there were at least two confirmed tornadoes, with one being a high end EF-1 near Edgewater, Florida, where it destroyed some houses and took the roofs off of others. The other tornado occurred over Lake Apopka, and lasted just a few minutes. Thankfully, no fatalities were reported. There have also been tornadoes reported in Italy, Poland, South Africa and Uruguay over the past week or two, with several fatalities. This late Fall has been a deadly one for tornadoes outside of the United States. The US may actually have the fewest tornadoes in quite some time for 2012, with only 893 tornadoes (10 year average is around 1300) confirmed so far this year. Check out the video of the Edgewater tornado below!

Hurricane Sandy, as of this writing, has been responsible for at least 88 US deaths, along with 43 in the Caribbean, making it the 4th deadliest hurricane in US history. It also left millions of people without power and the damage will be in the billions. Sandy was a very unique storm, making landfall as a category 1 hurricane and then became a post-tropical storm, bringing blizzard conditions to the Appalachian mountains and surrounding areas, with up to 3 feet of snow in some locations! She made landfall Monday evening, very close to Atlantic City, where major damage occurred along the Jersey Shore.
TVN covered both facets of the "superstorm" with a team of Dave Holder, Mike Scantlin, Chad Cowan and Blake Knapp covering the hurricane in NYC, where massive flooding occurred along the coastal waters, and where a major fire erupted in Queens late Monday night. Reed Timmer and Connor McCrorey covered the blizzard part of the storm, streaming live video and documenting massive snowfall amounts from Elkins, West Virginia! Check out both videos up, below!
Due to Hurricane Sandy this week, both the podcast and "Tornado Chasers" have been pushed back to next Tuesday night (8 pm CDT) and Wednesday, respectively. Also, episode 1 of "Tornado Chasers" is up online for FREE, watch below! Those who purchased episode 1 should have received an email this week about gaining free access to episode 7, which will debut this Wednesday here!
