Severe storms and tornadoes swept across the Eastern U.S. Tuesday, killing five people. In upstate New York, four people were killed and several homes destroyed. And at a Maryland campsite, one child was killed and eight others injured by falling trees. Meanwhile, downed power lines left hundreds of thousands without electricity.

More recalls for faulty airbags have been announced. Honda is recalling about 1 million more cars. That's on top of the 2 million that have already been recalled. The automaker says a defective inflator could explode in a crash, sending shards of its metal casing into the passenger compartment.

A heart-stopping water slide opens to the public in Kansas Thursday. This is "The Verrückt", billed as the world's tallest water slide, at Schlitterbahn Park in Kansas City.

The 168-foot plus water slide features a 50-foot drop that's taller than Niagara Falls.
