Four people were listed as missing Sunday after an earthquake sparked a tsunami off Greenland and forced some residents to be evacuated. Police Chief Bjorn Tegner Bay said he was unable to confirm whether there had been fatalities. However he said, 11 houses had been swept away after a magnitude 4 overnight quake off Uuummannaq, a small island well above the arctic circle. There were also reports of waves striking two other villages.
Twisters have been ravaging the Midwest and leveling communities in their path. A barn appeared to disintegrate as a monster tornado ripped along a country road and took the roof off a home in Wyoming.

In Nebraska, not a stick of one barn was left standing after it was shredded by a tornado.
Researchers have captured the 'birth cry' of a baby star for the first time. They observed a huge flow of gas rocketing from a maturing star known as Orion KL Source 1, which is 1,400 light-years away from Earth. This allowed the team to determine how the gas was launched from the baby star and solve a long-standing mystery on how stars form.

Stunning photos of a pair of humpback whales have emerged from a recent Sydney Harbour tour depicting the magnificent mammals in their full glory. Delighted tourists were treated to a remarkable display from the whales - which has been hailed the best in 10 years - as their boat toured around the harbour entrance in search of the gentle giants. The huge animals didn't disappoint as they leaped into the air between North Head and South Head as eager onlookers were at the ready with their cameras on Sunday. Around 50 sightseers were lucky enough to witness the rare phenomenon of a double breach - where two whales simultaneously leap out of the water. Some were lucky enough to capture the perfect shot, with the picturesque backdrop of Sydney's city and harbour in the background. Tour organisers Whale Watching Sydney expressed their delight on Facebook after suggesting the sightings so early in the season were a moment to savor. 'I'm a little speechless here, second day of the season and we are already seeing double breaches. Quite the afternoon we had,' the tour company commented online. Jonas Liebschner of Whale Watching Sydney, who took the remarkable photos, told Daily Mail Australia the sightings were extremely rare. 'In 10 years of doing this work in Sydney Harbour that's the best double breaching photo I've seen.' 'In a season, you will normally see it happen probably twice, so for it to happen so early in the season, it's special,' he added.

Storm chasers in Oklahoma faced a frightening array of dangers as one vehicle spun out of control and another was brushed by a tornado.
This is the incredible moment a huge dust devil, more commonly seen in deserts, was caught on camera swirling around an industrial park - in SHROPSHIRE. Managing director Stuart Jones was walking across his site when the piles of dust suddenly whipped up several feet into the air in front of him. He managed to get his phone out and film the dust swirling around the yard like a mini tornado. His one-minute video shows the 15ft high dust devil gathering pace as it moves around the site before it eventually fizzles out. The phenomenon, which is known as a dust devil, is more common in desert or arid landscapes. But Mr Jones filmed it at his Ridgway Rentals plant in Oswestry, Shrops., last Wednesday (10/5). He said: 'At first I thought it was a mini-tornado by there was absolutely no wind in the yard at all. 'We have had similar things that might rise up from the ground a few feet then disappear almost immediately but nothing as spectacular as this before. 'You can really hear it blowing and it's certainly something quite amazing to see. 'Luckily all our Plant Rental Machinery is of a huge weight so was totally unaffected by the power of the swirling updraft and nobody came to any harm.' Dust Devils are similar to tornadoes with both weather phenomenons being a swirling updraft under conditions during fair weather. They form when hot air near the surface of the earth rises quickly through a small pocket of cooler, low-pressure air above it. The column of hot air then begins to rotate if the conditions are right and stretches vertically as the air rapidly rises. They are known as dust devils because in many countries around the world they were thought to be bad spirits. Aborigines would warn their children a spirit will emerge from the cloud of hot air if they misbehave. The Navajo Indians in North America also say a good spirit will spin clockwise and a bad spirit anti-clockwise. Across the Middle East they are known as djin, genies or devils and they are even known to rise up on the surface of Mars. In Texas in 2010, three children in an inflatable bouncy castle were picked up by a dust devil and lifted over 10 feet travelling over a fence and landing in a backyard three houses away.
This is the bizarre moment a razor clam defecates on a beach as it burrows into the sand. Razor clams use a long muscle inside their shell to help them get below the surface of the sand. In this video, the clam is worming its way down into the ground, when it decides to unload itself. The clam can be seen to spurt out a jet of a black substance, before continuing to burrow. Razor clams have two siphons - an inhalant, and an exit siphon - which are next to each other and at the opposite end of their foot. Razor clams are long and rectangular and can grow up to nine inches (23cm) though many are smaller than this. Their shells are fragile and open at each end. They don't have eyes or a head, but do have a mouth, a heart, kidneys, gills and an anus. In the video, it appears the clam is getting rid of some of its way before it gets into the sand to hunt. Razor clams are bivalves, which means they filter water as they feed. They mostly eat plankton, which they take on through one siphon. As it moves through them, they use another siphon to expel the water. The Pacific razor clam was spotted on the cost of Oregon last month.
A daring photographer captured startling images of an erupting volcano - and he even managed to shoot the mesmerising milky way in the background.

It looks like the end of the world - but this bubbling red fire is actually a lava lake. The molten lava churns in on itself as fresh magma from below the Earth's crust arrives at the surface, before cooling and forming black crusts, which explode in flames. The incredible lava lake, at Mount Nyirangogo, an active volcano in Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo, was caught on camera by photographer Scott Ramsay during a hiking trip with pals.

A terrified couple thought it was 'the end' when they saw an avalanche hurtling towards them while trekking at the bottom of a steep valley near Everest. Holly Cowie, from London, and Axel Haudiquet, from France, were hiking near Langtang Village in Nepal when they were caught in the avalanche trigged by an earthquake. As the pair ran under a tree for safety, they captured terrifying footage showing the earth shaking and a cloud of dust rising into the sky before the avalanche hit. Speaking to the Smithsonian, two years after the incident, Holly said: 'There was a loud roaring. 'I looked back up the valley towards Langtang, the village itself, and could see a big cloud approaching. 'Amongst this, the roar of the wind. It then went dark.' The couple's footage shows the mountainside shaking violently as the earthquake got worse. Looking up the mountain, a large cloud of smoke rises through the trees and rocks fall down the crags. Holly and Axel scrambled behind a tree and clung on to the branch in a bid to protect themselves. The couple were submerged in dirt and debris when the avalanche hit and the pair feared for their lives. Axel said: 'I remember seeing the leaves of the trees shaking. 'I didn't know what it was. And then the earth moved. 'For a second I thought "oh cool, it's an earthquake." First time in my life I experienced an earthquake. 'We were probably in the worst place you want to be for an earthquake because we were at the bottom of a steep valley. 'Then I realised something was coming towards us. 'I couldn't see Holly and I had no idea where I was. That's it. It's the end. I was terrified.' Holly and Axel had arrived in Nepal ten days earlier and were caught in the 7.8 magnitude earthquake. The earthquake and avalanche killed around 9,000 people on April 25 2015, destroying Langtang Village. She told MailOnline in 2015: 'I didn't think earthquake, I don't know what I thought it was. We ran a bit left and then right, it was hard to know where to go as we couldn't see anything coming for us. 'Luckily my boyfriend twigged what was happening and we ran for a bush and knelt behind it. 'It was really noisy and things were falling all around us. A big stone fell next to us and split in two. 'It was really calm when the earthquake stopped shaking but we knew we weren't safe and ran to a bigger tree. 'When I looked up the valley there was a billowing brown cloud coming straight for us down the valley. I had no idea what it could be.' After the the couple found their guide, they made their way down the mountain and found other tourists who were badly injured, including an Australian believed to ahve broken her back. Holly said she burst into tears when she was offered a chocolate bar and when they reached the British Embassy in Kathmandu. The couple had planned to spend a few weeks in India but cut their trip short because of the earthquake. Holly said she had a white scarf given to travellers for luck tied to her backpack also survived the quake.
A stunning ‘FlightLapse’ reveals the night sky from a pilot’s perspective. While traveling from Europe to South America, Sales Wick shot the mesmerising flight – highlighting glowing cities and the glittering Milky Way. The 5,000 mile (8,000km) journey was shot using a Sony a7S camera from the cockpit of an Airbus A340 passenger flying at 500mph (800kph). The project, called 'Beyond the Clouds', is a timelapse of a flight that left Zurich, Switzerland at 9:50PM BST (4:50PM ET) and arrived in Sao Paulo, Brazil 4:35AM BST (11:35PM ET). ‘Flying through the night, while the world beneath us is at sleep, is a pretty common thing as a long haul pilot,’ Mr Wick wrote on his website. ‘The latter is the case for my flight today across the Atlantic Ocean to South America. Our flight is packed and some 340 passengers are settling in for a long night flight.’ The plane first headed westbound along ‘the clearly visible Alps’ that sat at the left of the plane.
This stunning rainbow cloud was captured on Sunday and appears to resemble a unicorn. Anne Salikala, 21, spotted the incredible shimmering clouds in the sky in Pagadian City, Philippines. The unique formation looks like the multicoloured flowing mane of the mythological horned creature. The phenomenon is called cloud iridescence or irisation. The term comes from Iris, the Greek personification of rainbow. Cloud iridescence is a fairly uncommon phenomenon.
