During an electrical storm, charge builds up inside storm clouds as tiny ice crystals collide, eventually releasing a bolt as electricity leaps from th Continue reading

A powerhouse storm was forecast to slam into the Pacific Northwest late Monday and into Tuesday, bringing heavy rain, howling winds and mountain snow. What’s unusual about this storm is that it includes remnants of Hurricane Ana, a central Pacific storm that blew by Hawaii last weekend.
