through a house, dug into the road's shoulder, and slammed into a shed.

explode and the 10 people on board survived.

Labrador¿s Northern Peninsula coastline broke up and blew out to sea,
leaving many dead seal pups in its wake. The lack of sea ice in the northern

sightseeing attraction and an easy meal for bald eagles, coyotes, and foxes.
