Let me guess ... Trump is at fault because surely he should have known that tornado was going to strike, he was unprepared and sources in the White House are saying he was busy watching boats and using taxpayers money doing so ... about right CNN ? IS THAT MAGIC TOUCH? It's God over everything It’s a red state so I’m sure they will get all the aid they need.
There's a video of a person flying.. May the Lord have mercy 🙏 Majority of people inside their houses. There was an explosion in Ondo, Nigeria also overnight. Building destroyed... Even roads.. Prayers to the victims in both disasters❤ Prayers for the people of Jonesboro, Arkansas Did you guys get permission to run a story other than coronavirus. Horrible news of course but shocking to see a story that doesn’t have SOMETHING to go with Covid-19

Midwest braces for dangerous severe weather and possible tornado outbreak SaturdayViolent storms could threaten Chicago, but the greatest tornado risk is expected to its southwest.

But...but this is just going to blow COVID-19 all over the place! 😲 And so starts the storm, pestilence, and plague season in biblical proportions.

New Rochelle, Once a Coronavirus Hot Spot, May Now Offer Hope“Everybody talks about flattening the curve, and I think that’s exactly what we were able to do in New Rochelle,” a health official said Dog 🐶 or Cat 🐱 What you should be thinking about now is a new president 😗
What Will It Take to Flatten the Coronavirus Curve?Flattening the curve is the quest to slow transmissions of Covid-19 so the accumulating number of infections looks like a gentle slope instead of a vertiginous spike. The matter is urgent, according to infectious-disease experts who have modeled strategies to slow the spread. Well get rid of stupid people like Governor Reeves in Mississippi- he rejected a shelter in place and the state’s cases are on the rise... A good start would be for you wsj to refrain from spreading Trump’s bad and dangerous lies about this virus. It will take a potus that listens to experts rather than his pollsters, who cares abt citizens more than his power, who won't let people die because he hates his predecessor. And it will take media doing more than repeating his lies...
