The New York Times - A severe weather outbreak gearing up to hammer the country’s midsection on Tuesday could spawn sustained, muscular tornadoes as well as softball-size hail showers, say forecasters, who also warned of additional rounds of storms to follow. The day is expected to start out warm, if a bit windy, for a large swath of the Plains, from southern Texas up to Nebraska. By late afternoon, though, it could turn scary quickly and remain that way until after dark, meteorologists say. Several major cities — including Dallas, Oklahoma City, Wichita, Kan., and Kansas City — lie in the storms’ potential path, putting lives and property in danger.

Insurance News Net - Authorities suspect the fire that destroyed the historic Tink Larson Field was intentionally set. The state fire marshal has ruled out other causes of the April 6 fire, including electrical or lightning, Waseca police Capt. Kris Markeson said Monday. Earlier this month, authorities asked a man seen at the field the night of the fire to come forward, but police have since talked with him and determined he is not a suspect, Markeson said. The Minnesota Chapter of the International Association of Arson Investigators is offering a reward up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person believed to be responsible through the Minnesota Arson Reward Project.
