UPDATE 12:01 P.M. EST: The death toll has risen to 10 with the tragic deaths of an elderly couple who just celebrated their 36th wedding anniversary.


What absolutely devastating news.

As you've probably noticed, 2015 has had one of the weirdest Winters ever as the competing El Nino Southern Oscillation and Arctic Oscillation have kept America relatively warm and dry.

But this weather phenomenon unfortunately took a terrifying turn on Wednesday when a cluster of freak tornadoes tore through part of the Southern United States, killing at least eight in the process.

A staggering 14 tornadoes were reported, with one Northern Mississippi twister traveling 150 miles on the ground… potentially the largest ever on record for the month.

Our thoughts are with everyone who just lost their homes or loved ones during what's supposed to be a happy time of year.

It all started back on December 1, when three same-sex couples won a court battle in front of Little Rock Circuit Court Judge Tim Fox to allow their names to be placed on their children's birth certificates — so long, Judge Fox deemed, as they were married before the birth.

But the state of Arkansas appealed the ruling, arguing it conflicted with state laws, and now the Arkansas Supreme Court has once again blocked same-sex couples from both being listed on the child's birth certificate.

In their opinion, the court stated:

This is a step in the right direction, but we think more still needs to be done.

Indiana and Arkansas made national headlines over the past week for trying to implement discriminatory bills into law that could allow businesses to refuse service to LGBT patrons.

Republican Gov. Mike Pence first signed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act last Thursday, and since then, companies, celebrities, and people all across America have spoken out against the decision.

Now, a week after the initial bill passed, both states at the center of the scandal have signed revisions to the controversial law.
