Midwest Storm Breaks U.S. Pressure Record

The pressure within the powerful storm that left a trail of destruction across the Midwest on Tuesday not only broke records in individual states and cities, but also one for the United States.

Bigfork, Minn., recorded the storm's lowest pressure at 4:13 p.m. CDT Tuesday. The pressure bottomed out at 28.20 inches (955 millibars). That is equivalent to a typical pressure within a Category 3 hurricane.

Maybe folks in the midwest should think this through if they are casting votes for politicians who think global warming and evolution are political rumors.

Here's some scientific overview.
