M 7.6 earthquake in Honduras

A strong earthquake struck off the coast of Honduras on Tuesday night, shaking the mainland and setting off tsunami warnings that were canceled about an hour later. The quake was very shallow, at only 6.2 miles (10km), and while it was felt in Belize City, there were no immediate reports of damage.

Winter Storm Hunter

Winter Storm Hunter is expected to bring wind, snow and ice to a large area of the mid-west on Wednesday and Thursday, while a second low-pressure area is expected to impact states further east with snow, sleet and freezing rain further east.

Taking no chances, the National Weather Service has issued winter storm watches, warnings, and winter weather advisories in a number of locations in the upper Mississippi Valley, northern and central Plains, High Plains, and Rockies for phase one of Winter Storm Hunter.

In addition, a blizzard warning has been posted in the Red River Valley of eastern North Dakota and northwestern Minnesota, where blowing snow may lead to near-zero visibility in open country.
