This just in from “stef’s news at 5:35” we are having reports of strange weather conditions coming from the east side. It is said that there are hurricanes forming and earthquakes are rising from under the ground. Scientists cant find any answers to why this is happening. Nasa scientists think that it is because of and object that entered earths atmosphere and that has made the atmospheric preasure to dense and so that is causing all of these events to happen now. But yet again that is just another theory. I am now getting word that we have a reporter in the middle of all this. We will cut to him right now.
Thanks stef, that’s right I am standing here in new york in times square where you can see a big crack in the ground caused by a earthquake that just hit a few minutes ago. And we are hearing of rummers that a humungous hurricane is moving towards us people are feating for their lives right now. God I wish I lived in bc you know, I bet those people are sipping a nice coffee and watching stranger things while we are preparing for the worst. The weather has taken a turn for the worst. And al I can say is god bless america.
