We’ve run dashcam videos of some pretty insane things, but I think this is the first time we’ve seen a dashcam video, from the driver’s viewpoint, of a stationary car getting engulfed by a tornado, like a colossal amoeba engulfing some microscopic sandwich or whatever they eat. It’s pretty alarming to see, but…
New York City got battered last evening by severe weather, and as a precautionary measure, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority closed train lines that head north out of the city. This promptly turned Grand Central Station into, well, this.
When I think of New Zealand, I have two cultural frames of reference: it looks like Middle Earth, and Flight of the Conchords is from there. Yet neither hobbits nor folk rap stars swear that much, so I figured Kiwis were the PG version of Australians. I was wrong. That’s apparently not the case when they’re driving…
The snow and ice along I-44 in Missouri was bad earlier this week, as evidenced by an insane video from Monday showing one woman’s attempt to scramble from her car while slipping in the snow as a semi truck crashes into a pileup, just barely missing her.
Some cars are just better suited to more extreme weather than others. I wouldn’t take a Honda S2000 out in a blizzard unless I already had an extremely convoluted life-insurance fraud scheme all planned out. In the same way, I wouldn’t take a Toyota 4Runner to a drift competition with any hopes of winning. But…
I’ve never been on a cruise before because I have never wanted to be on a cruise. I do not see what is so appealing of being stuck on a big ship with four thousand other people when getting caught in a storm in the middle of the ocean is a possibility. Which is exactly what happened to this cruise ship.
Ski lifts are the cars of the ski slope, just without pretty much any of the standard safety features, and strung up dozens of feet above the ground. This makes ski lifts extremely precarious in windy situations, as evidenced by this terrifying video taken at a ski resort in Vorarlyberg, Austria, on Wednesday.
CNN correspondent Drew Griffin was reporting on the impact of Hurricane Harvey in Beaumont, Texas, when a man drove his pickup straight into a flooded ravine right behind them during a broadcast.
A local news team covering the flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey in Houston, Texas managed to save the life of a truck driver stranded in water during their live broadcast.
A massive hail storm, flogging hunks the size of baseballs, hit the middle of Colorado yesterday. Pray, dear friends, because today we wake up to a world with many fewer windshields in it.
A tornado cut through the parking lot of an auto repair shop in Lafayette, Louisiana last weekend, picking up and tossing somebody’s car. That might make the repair estimate go up.
Chasing storms is dangerous and getting increasingly reality-TV-esque, as chasers get closer and closer and closer to tornadoes for the viral thrill. But there’s push-back within this community of weather/adrenaline junkies. They’re pissed that one car full of chasers went driving straight into a tornado.
Zoom! Hey, check this out. It’s rained so much in California, you can actually take one of those friggin’ Jetski Sea-Doo things right on down the road.
BRAVE THROUGH THE TREACHEROUS WEATHER, MANY VALIANT HEROES OF THE GREAT LAND GATHER TO RESCUE THE WEAK COMPACT TRANSPORT FROM THE ICE HILL ROAD.
I’m not sure who pissed off Raijin and Fūjin, the ancient Japanese gods of weather, but it sure seems like somebody did, since three typhoon-like storm systems just slammed into Japan at once. The result was a lot of flooding, turning many Tokyo streets into rivers, and tunnels into water pipes. Which some people were…
Tornadoes. When you see a warning about them on the weather channel, it usually advises you to take shelter or get on out of there. But some folks are into chasing those storms, and we end up with extreme close ups of a phenomenon that a lot of us would rather not venture out to get for ourselves.
Rumor has it that it rains in some parts of the world, and that motorcyclists often choose to ride anyways. For those of you who ride in the rain and are fed up with trying to ride while pawing at your shield or turning your head from side to side to get the drops to blow off comes Rainpal - an electric wiper for your…
This weekend sure seemed like a fun one for a huge swath of the country, with 30 inches of snow or more burying the Northeast, roads getting shut down, and entire cities falling into anarchy as Blizzardpocalypse 2016 caused us to abandon our humanity and any pretense of law and order.
Justin Yelen was unfairly punished by Mother Nature for doing the right thing. He took another ride home from Hoak’s Lakeshore after drinking with friends, only to find his car completely encased in ice from Lake Erie’s spray in the morning. Fortunately, his car was just freed by crews from a local dealership.
