Typhoon Haiyan is possibly the strongest storm ever to hit land. But it is far from the only monster storm to cause unimaginable amounts of death and destruction. 360's Gary Tuchman looks at some of the world's worst storms.
Some of the areas hit hardest by this storm are completely cut off from outside communications. Families around the world are waiting to hear from loved ones. Anderson spoke with Katsy Borromeo-Chiongbian who is in Chicago and has been unable to reach her relatives in the Philippines.
In the five decades since the assassination of President John F. Kennedy many Americans have never believed that Lee Harvey Oswald was a lone gunman. Today Secretary of State John Kerry said that he's not convinced either. Anderson discussed this with author Philip Shenon and presidential historian Douglas Brinkley.
California high school teacher Brian Ludmer is lucky to be alive. He was shot at Los Angeles International Airport when a gunman opened fire. The bullet shattered two leg bones. Speaking from his hospital bed, Brian described how he crawled into a closet and saved his own life with a makeshift tourniquet.
The CNN Film Pandora's Promise looks at the debate over nuclear power and whether it could help combat climate change. Some environmentalists are not willing to risk future disasters along the lines of Chernobyl, Three Mile Island or Fukushima, even if it means reducing the world's reliance on fossil fuels. Anderson took a closer look at these issues with filmmaker Robert Stone, climate scientist James Hansen and Dale Bryk of Natural Resources Defense Council.
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
