The Deathstorm in the Sea Keeps on Churnin' On Day 94

News

  • After losing strength over what's left of Haiti, The Deathstorm hit open water, started gobbling steroids, and now has its eye set on breaking Hurricane Katrina's home run record.

Meanwhile, near the Land of Drug Cartels, another deathstorm is forming, but its current status is illegal until further notice.
