Bostonglobe.com reports that...

A rare tornado roared through this seaside city with terrifying force Monday, uprooting hundreds of trees, ripping roofs off houses, and spurring an intensive recovery effort that could last weeks.

Carrying winds as high as 120 miles per hour, the powerful storm cut a destructive path through Revere’s central business district. It damaged more than 100 homes and turned a quiet residential neighborhood into a scene of stunned confusion in just a few minutes.

The first tornado to hit Suffolk County in at least 60 χρόνια, the twister snapped large oak trees and sent large sections of metal guardrails flying through the air, but no serious injuries were reported, δήλωσαν αξιωματούχοι.

Crews battling a wildfire in Arizona’s eastern mountains are making headway with successful burnout operations, even as the blaze blackens more territory.

Southwest Area Incident Management Team spokesman Bill Morse said Sunday evening that the San Juan Fire had charred nearly 9 square miles, up from nearly 8 square miles.

But he said that all the growth is inside perimeter lines that firefighters have built. The burnout operations have consumed fuels between the perimeter and the main fire on the western edge and may produce more smoke than had been seen.
