The Southern Annular Mode (SAM Index), an index which describes the north-south movement of a westerly storm belt encircling Antarctica, turned negative during the second half of July.

Brian Barnes didn’t let his near-death experience with a tornado (bão táp, cơn lốc xoáy) scare (khiến sợ hãi) him away from chasing storms — it turned him into a brave photographer. The 39-year-old grew up in “Tornado Alley” — living through multiple tornadoes and even getting struck by lightning in the country’s storm belt — and now dedicates his life to snapping stunning shots of all sorts of storms.
