- If you haven’t used Netflix in a while your account may have been terminated. Netflix announced that it is asking customers who signed up and then didn’t stream anything for 12 months if they want to keep their membership or not. The company is also reaching out to those who haven’t streamed anything in the last two years and asking them the same thing. If Netflix members don’t confirm that they want to keep subscribing, their accounts will automatically be cancelled. Once Netflix terminates an inactive account it will save the account favorites, profiles, viewing preferences, and account details for 10 months, so if the person decides to sign up again their account remains as it was.

A Texas meteorologist has shared weather radar footage that shows a large swarm of bats being dispersed by gusts of wind from a thunderstorm. Chris Suchan, a meteorologist for WOAI-TV, says the swarm was large enough to be picked up by weather radar after emerging from Frio Bat Cave in Uvalde County Wednesday night. Suchan says the footage shows a gust front — a powerful wind created by torrential rains pushing downdrafts outward — colliding with the swarm of bats, dispersing the animals. (See it here)
