Experts predict the volcano eruption on the Caribbean island of St. Vincent will last for days, even weeks. Officials urge people to seek safety as rescuers search for those who haven't evacuated.
The ongoing eruption at La Soufrière on the Caribbean island of St. Vincent is expected to be as big, if not bigger, than the last time it had a major eruption in 1979.
NOAA is updating its definition of what a "normal" Atlantic hurricane season looks like, based on the last 30 years. The average number of hurricanes in the new normal has risen from 6 to 7.
Another above-average hurricane season is in the forecast, with 17 named storms and four major hurricanes. Researchers say the growing number of intense storms is due to climate change.
St. Vincent's National Emergency Management Organization raised the island's alert to red on Thursday, after days of increased seismic activity at the La Soufriere volcano.
In May, NOAA will release its once-a-decade update for the 30-year weather averages that local meteorologists use. In many places, it will mean far fewer days that are "above normal."
Floodwaters submerged roads and left people clinging to trees, authorities said. The rain has subsided, but officials are warning residents to stay vigilant as creeks and rivers rise.
A Georgia town is picking up the pieces after an overnight tornado left one man dead and others injured. Coweta County officials blame the death on the storm that caused "catastrophic" damage in Newnan.
The massive storm spread ice, snow and freezing temperatures over huge swaths of Texas, but power grid problems left millions weathering conditions in the dark in uninsulated homes.
There have been rescues of people trapped in homes destroyed by the "super cell" storm that was also hitting Georgia and Mississippi with more twisters and hail.
Torrential rain has inundated parts of Australia, forcing evacuations and sending waterfalls down the side of the country's majestic — and normally arid — Uluru rocks.
Forecasters used nine Greek letters to name the final storms of last year's Atlantic hurricane season. This year, the National Hurricane Center has a new plan.
The computer model that predicts the weather is getting more power. Climate change is upping the stakes for forecasters as extreme weather gets more common and residents demand earlier warnings.
There hadn't been an eruption on the Reykjanes Peninsula in nearly 800 years. A different volcano in Iceland erupted in 2010, spewing ash that caused long-lasting trouble for international air travel.
Lingering effects of the storm are expected to cause dangerous conditions though early Monday as residents dig out from under the weekend's record breaking levels of snow.
