(Newser) – A tornado fueled by an unusually warm winter air sliced through parts of northwestern Arkansas early today, killing at least three people, injuring several others, and knocking out power to thousands. Three people died in Cincinnati, a small town about three miles from the Oklahoma border. A sheriff's dispatcher said the storm touched down near the center of the community. He said "lots of injuries" were reported, and officials in nearby Benton County said the storm injured two people and damaged five homes there.

On behalf of all those who, like me, are right wing climate change deniers and hypertension sufferers, I wish Newser would allow us to turn off these stories about extreme weather around the world. Due to blizzards, floods, tornadoes, etc in our areas, plenty of us are finding it hard to get to the pharmacy to refill our propranolol prescriptions.
