Good morning! Here’s what you missed over the weekend:

The Lead Story: Tornadoes stormed the Midwest last night, leaving at least 6 dead. Illinois took the brunt of the storm with 10 tornadoes touching down there. From Gawker:

“The whole neighborhood’s gone. The wall of my fireplace is all that is left of my house,” another Washington resident, Michael Perdun, told NBC. “I stepped outside and I heard it coming. My daughter was already in the basement, so I ran downstairs and grabbed her, crouched in the laundry room and all of a sudden I could see daylight up the stairway and my house was gone.”

Everything Else:

Kanye West stopped by Harvard’s graduate school of design on Sunday, probably to introduce his new morning show

Ever wondered what famous events in U.S. history would look like with Instagram? Wonder no more. 

A tree fell on the path to the Morgans during the storm last night, but it’s already been cleared.

Thor 2 won the box office over the weekend, taking in $38.4 million. This brings its global ticket sales to $479 million, which is greater than the original Thor.

Adult superstar Jenna Jameson has returned to her craft (well, kind of), reportedly due to financial issues.

SNL killed it over the weekend, skewering Lara Logan of CBS’s 60 Minutes and Toronto Mayor Rob Ford at the same time

The Long Read: If you’ve seen one infomercial, you’ve seen a thousand and probably wondered, “Who would buy that?” But from infomercials came the Snuggie, one product in a industry worth over $200 billion.

The Weather: Expects highs in the low 50s, some wind today and rain this Friday and Saturday. It may snow on Saturday as well.
