Although San Francisco has seen an Exodus of renters and homeowners in recent years, prices continue to skyrocket as more investors take over SF Bay Area properties.
Recently, notable LGBTQ activist Cleve Jones who co-founded the San Francisco AIDS Foundation among other accolades was affected when the rent for his Castro District apartment spiked from $2,393 to $5,200. The building was purchased for $1.5 million by a 30-year-old stock market investor who used surveillance to suggest that Jones vacated his unit while he was sheltering elsewhere during the pandemic.—Priya Shukla

Fewer tornadoes are occurring in the Great Plains, while the number of tornadoes has increased in the South, including Louisiana. By @MSchleifstein
Tornadoes are some of the weirdest extreme weather events. The light becomes strange, you hear a roar, and then the sky—suddenly murderous—reaches down to crush everything beneath it. The United States is a tornado country, with no close competitors. We average about 1,200 a year—higher than the yearly average for all of Europe and Canada combined. 
“Tornado Alley” is generally regarded as the area stretching from central Texas up to Canada, but that term can be misleading. The tornados of the midwest tend to cut a more dramatic figure, easier to photograph, with better-defined funnels. While the tornadoes of the South tend to be obscured by cloud cover and much more deadly—both because of population density in the South and because tornadoes there are more likely to take place at night. 
There is some evidence that climate change is causing tornadoes to shift east. New Orleans and the surrounding area, which is recovering from Hurricane Ida and was hit by an E3 tornado last Tuesday is due for more severe weather later this week.
A low-pressure system makes landfall along the California coast and moves to the South on Tuesday and Wednesday. The region could see strong winds, rain, and potential tornados.
