WASHINGTON—A wave of glass-filled pipe bombs targeting Hillary Clinton, former president Barack Obama, other prominent Democrats, and CNN was thwarted without physical harm but an anxiety-filled day yesterday deepened political tensions and fears two weeks before national mid-term elections.
None of the bombs detonated as law enforcement took them away for examination and disposal.
WASHINGTON—Over the past few decades, tornadoes have been decreasing in Oklahoma, Texas, and Kansas but spinning up more in states along the Mississippi River and farther east, a new study shows.
