 Welcome to ten minutes of international current events.I'm Carl Azuz, broadcasting from the CNN Center.

First up, shares of Mitsubishi Motors, a carmaker based in Japan, are in a record low.Car companies are required to test the fuel efficiency, the gas mileage of their vehicles.Now, Mitsubishi recently admitted that it had cheated on its fuel economy tests, essentially saying their cars got better gas mileage than they really did and that the company has been doing this for as long as 25 years.This includes the gas mileage for hundreds of thousands of vehicles, including some sold to the carmaker Nissan.But only the Mitsubishi sold in Japan are believed to have the wrong gas mileage information.The company says car sold in the U.S. and other countries were tested the right way and have accurate fuel economy measurement.The scandal has decreased Mitsubishi's market value by 50 percent.Other carmakers including Kia, Hyundai and Ford have paid a price for overstating their cars' gas mileage.
 
Dangerous forecast last night for many parts of the U.S. Midwest.The National Weather Service said tornadoes like this one damaging hail, destructive winds were expected.A CNN meteorologist said a tornado outbreak was possible, and in the path of all of it, more than 3.6 million Americans.Remembering a massive deadly tornado from 2013, two Oklahoma school districts shut down and some others let students out early yesterday.Nebraska, Kansas and north Texas also had weather warnings.Forecasters say to prepare, know the safest spot to go when you're home or school or business.Set up a meeting place with your family or friends in case phone service goes out.Keep a weather radio handy and set your phone to receive emergency weather alerts.All of these things can help if a tornado spins up.
 
Tornadoes are so powerful, they can flatten homes to their foundation, they could peel asphalt right off the highway, and it can toss around 18-wheelers like they're small toys.Tornadoes can be the most deadly and destructive weather phenomenon on earth.In fact, about a thousand tornadoes occur every year in the U.S.
