News2 Breaking News Thread - 11/17/13 (Includes coverage of major tornadoes)

Good Day, folks! After checking with our wonderful admins, I was granted permission to start a series of breaking news threads here on YY! They will be updated with breaking news throughout the day.

For those of you who do not know me, I am a professional journalist with experience with BNO News (and the @BreakingNews twitter feed) as well as Ora TV (Larry King's news organization) and their @NewsBreaker twitter feed.

DISCLAIMER: The links I post will include a 5 second ad, you simply click "skip ad" in the upper right-hand corner to end the ad. To make it easier to find news amongst possible discussions, news links will be posted in bold.

NOW, THE NEWS

A dangerous outbreak of tornadoes has hit the Chicago area throughout the morning and early afternoon. Here is a link to the Chicago Tribune's Breaking News coverage of the event. http://adf.ly/ZTGqZ

Here is a list of current tornado warnings in the United States from the National Weather Service http://adf.ly/ZTBFo


A plane crashed today in the Russian region, killing all 50 aboard. Read about it here: http://adf.ly/ZT8Pn

Let me know if you have any questions and this thread will be updated throughout the day.
