A magnitude 5.1 earthquake rocked Southern California over the weekend. It struck along a fault that's less well-known than the San Andreas, but one that's potentially even more dangerous. Jason Carroll takes a closer look.
Satellites are playing a key role in the search for Flight 370. But so far, they have not been able to spot any debris from the missing plane. Weeks into the search, there are questions about why satellites have not been able to provide more accurate information. Gary Tuchman got an up close look at how they work.
Planes and ships are combing the Indian Ocean for any sign of the missing plane. The hope is they can zero in on the location while the black boxes are still pinging their locations. Navy Commander William Marks is looking for Flight 370 on the USS Blue Ridge. He tells Anderson they are spotting debris everyday, but so far "nothing associated with the aircraft."
For weeks, Malaysian authorities reported the final words from Flight 370's co-pilot to air traffic controllers was "All right, goodnight." That is a non-standard sign-off, and it raised serious questions about what may have been happening inside the cockpit. Now officials are revising what was said in the final transmission to "Good night Malaysian three seven zero" which is more routine. Anderson gets the latest developments from Kyung Lah in Australia and Nic Robertson in Kuala Lumpur.
Natasha Huestis had left her four-month-old daughter with her mother when the Washington landslide hit. Natasha says she realized she lost both of them when she learned "there was nothing left where the houses were." She speaks to Gary Tuchman about how she is finding strength in a time like this.
At a briefing with Malaysian authorities in Beijing, a large group of Flight 370 family members staged a walkout. These families are demanding answers and they want tangible proof of what happened to their loved ones. Paul Yin is a grief counselor who has been working with some of the Flight 370 families in Beijing.
Once search crews zero in on Flight 370's location, the hope is sonar 'pings' will lead them to the plane's black boxes. But there are several factors that seriously complicate that effort. Safety analyst David Soucie demonstrates how a sonar 'pinger' works and what it sounds like.
It could be the most promising lead yet in the search for Flight 370. Less than 24 hours after officials shifted the search area by nearly 700 miles, ships are working to reach objects spotted by airplanes. U.S. Navy Commander William Marks is taking part in the search and spoke to Anderson about these latest developments.
Anderson discusses the new leads and the new search area with safety analyst David Soucie, aviation correspondent Richard Quest, former Department of Transportation Inspector General Mary Schiavo and aviation analyst Miles O'Brien.
Search planes are now looking for Flight 370 in a new stretch of ocean. Australian authorities announced the search zone is now 684 miles northeast of the original one, closer to Perth. They say it is based on analysis of the plane's last known radar contact that suggests the 777 did not fly as far south as previously thought. Anderson spoke with U.S. Navy Commander William Marks who is looking for Flight 370 aboard the USS Blue Ridge.
Anderson discussed what was behind this shift with Aviation Correspondent Ricard Quest, Safety Analyst David Soucie, Aviation Analyst Miles O'Brien and David Gallo, who co-led the search for Air France Flight 447.
Weather conditions improved enough to allow planes to resume their search for Flight 370. Associated Press photographer Rob Griffith recently spent time aboard a Royal Australian Air Force P-3 Orion. He describes why crews find their best tool is often the human eye.
