TORNADO STRIKES BEACHFRONT PROPERTY IN NEW YORK CITY!

It's a reminder of how deadly of a day today could be--forecasters have warned for a week now that today would bring a round of horrid weather across the Northeast, including the threat of tornadoes..

And now this news is breaking of a tornado striking a beachfront neighborhood..

A photo was given to the AP taken by Joey Mure, which shows the tornado over the sea in Breezy Point near Queens:


The photo showcases how the Midwest isn't the only place that can get truly well-formed twisters--and how they don't just hit in spring but can also come when fall rushes in behind cold fronts in the late summer, as is happening today..

More dramatic weather is sure to take place throughout the day. Stay tuned to warnings if you are in affected areas. The HORROR REPORT home base is.. and I will be glued to NOAA radio within an hour or two as the storms begin to rush in..

A BLOOD RED RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT: YANGTZE TURNS COLORS

The Yangtze River in China is the longest and largest river in the nation.. yesterday in Chongquing, where the Yangtze connects to the Jialin River, the water turned a deep orange-red color. Residents are baffled by the new found color of the "golden" river--some however are blaming it on the widely known problem  of waste and pollution from industrial China. Chongquing is an industrial city.. 
According to international dispatches from the site of the red river, people are so amazed by the circumstances that they are actually going into the water with plastic bottles in order to save the discolored liquid.. others online are proclaiming days of tribulation coming, as Revelation says angels will make water on the planet turn to red during the last days.. 
To many, the events could signal doom. But to others who are more realistic, other approaches are more likely. Perhaps a chemical spill, perhaps low oxygen levels in the water, and maybe just a chemical dye that leaked into t…

The whole zombie apocalypse was funny--at first.. now maybe the government just be realistic about future disasters .. please?

But in my humble opinion its humor has run dry.. no more laughs when I see the headlines referring to 'it' .. instead now I grumble in annoyance at joke--a joke that has gone on too long and vastly worn out its semi-welcome..
The latest example of the government utilizing the slogan in a tongue in cheek manner comes from the Department of Homeland Security, which said that the 'zombies are coming'..   I suppose the logic may make sense.. they figure if you're ready for zombies you can be ready for the New Madrid Fault rumbling, or California falling off the West Coast, or the Canary Islands erupting and causing the East Coast tsunami.. And interestingly, as the HUFFINGTON POST reports,  many the movie ZOMBIELAND '33 rules' for dealing with the dead resembles the list that the federal government is using for disaster preparedness.
Bless the souls of the folks in Homeland Security for wanting people to be prepared. Sure, I get it. But the zombie thing? OLD.. be…

Two hurricanes converge? Could Leslie and Michael form a partnership?

Forecasters and others closely watching the Northern part of the Atlantic this weekend: Two storms, Michael and Leslie, appear to be heading for the same part of the Northern reaches of the planet .. And their tracks are close enough to make some wonder if they can converge into a larger storm.. Perhaps it could be the storm to end all storms! the storm of the century! the big one!
Or perhaps none of that will occur.. Much ado about nothing? 
If the storms did converge where would they go? Would they retain their individual identity? Their name could change? Would we name it Meslie or Lichael? Or Lilly? or .. Michelle? Possibilities are endless.
But the facts are these: Michael remains a very strong and impressive storm in the Atlantic Ocean right now. In just 12 hours from being named, it quickly became a category 3 storm. According to Accuweather,  "As Leslie intensifies and becomes larger, it should influence the northward movement of Michael in about 4-5 days. This will also exer…

The Earth is groaning: Seattle edition

Noises yet again are keeping residents on this planet awake and confused--this time the hum is in Seattle.

The earth groaning. Moaning. Or something?

The news of the Seattle noise comes from KING5, a news site in Seattle.. According to the report on the site, residents are even recording the noises in order to let the world hear them. One who was quoted in the story said "It gets high and lower, and goes away, then comes back." KING5 even has a recording of the hum on its website..

King5 says that some people are even feeling rumbles and being shaken out of bed by the earth groan..

As usual, companies are stating they are not to blame. There has been no official comment from the military. (remember the Navy blamed itself for the rumble in San Francisco this summer) ..

One suggestion is that the Seattle hum is an industrial noise ..

The mystery will continue, most likely..

And why not. No other earth groan or noise from across the planet have been cleared up since they began.. f…

IN THE DARK WILDERNESS OF GHOST HUNTING, SOME CASES CANNOT BE EXPLAINED. WE FOUND A GROUP THAT WANTS TO FIND THE REAL STORIES OF THE PARANORMAL

A few days ago the HORROR REPORT discovered a Ghost Society from North Caorlina that uses a more scientific approach to find ghosts, dispel rumors of them, and weed through the fakery in turn to find the real ghost stories that are truly unexplained. Jason Porter is the head of the Carolina Paranormal Society, and he said 90% of ghost stories can be explained away.
That leaves 10% ..
The HORROR REPORT was able to speak to Mr. Porter in more detail about his organization.
The Carolina Paranormal Society is four years young now, beginning in 2008. Before moving from Maine to North Carolina, Porter has his own ghost hunting team. In North Carolina, he wanted to join a new one. But he didn't find what he wanted to.. Not impressed by the groups that existed, he started his own, formed a website, and put a call out for a team.
It worked. He has 17 people now and wants to eventually have 32, which would be two full teams.
Porter's team travels a 100 mile radius around Charlotte. They h…

WILL COMA PUT YOU UNDER OR WAKE YOU UP?

A&E is hoping for high ratings for a four-hour miniseries set to be broadcast on its network. The title is COMA and it is based on a 1978 thriller.. the 1978 movie was actually based on a 1977 novel. A&E's new idea isn't novel, but it's updated a bit.. medicine has changed since way back in the Carter Administration.  It will start Monday and wrap up Tuesday..
The subject of the film: Peach Tree Memorial Hospital has a high amount of patients oddly falling into comas. Families are told that they are being transferred to an advanced care facility, but they are really becoming the subject of research and experimentation that pushes the boundaries of medical ethics.
Online reviews for the program have been mostly positive.. The majority call it fresh and entertaining. 
But the irony of this minimovie coming out now is there: Obama care and an election occurring, with debates fresh on front pages about what health care should do, and what health care should be. Medical et…
