New twisters touch down a day after tornadoes kill 16 people 

It's a one-two punch of deadly and destructive weather. New twisters touch down less than 24 hours after tornadoes swept through Arkansas, Iowa and Oklahoma. At least 14 were killed in Arkansas, and officials fear the death toll will rise as crews dig through debris. The twisters ripped roofs off of homes, tossed cars like toys and tore down power lines. Anderson takes a look at the destruction.

Martin Savidge reports from Tupelo, Mississippi just after a twister leveled a busy section of the city and Ed Lavandera has the latest from hard hit Mayflower, Arkansas.

Co-pilot's cell phone signal detected after Flight 370 vanished from radar

A signal coming from the cell phone belonging to Flight 370's co-pilot reached a Malaysian cell tower in the moments after the plane lost contact. The tower was about 250 miles from the location of the flight's final signal. It is raising serious questions about how far off course and how low the plane was flying. Pamela Brown has the latest on the investigation.

Martin Savidge takes a look at what this cell phone data says about Flight 370's altitude.

Recreating Flight 370's sharp left turn

Both Thai and Malaysian officials report their radar systems registered a plane that may have been Flight 370. If that's true, it would indicate the flight took a hard left from its intended route. A law enforcement official says a move like that was almost certainly programmed by someone in the cockpit. Martin Savidge took a closer look in a 777 flight simulator with flight instructor Mitchell Casado.

What may have happened inside the cockpit?

Unless you are a commercial pilot, it's hard to visualize what may have been happening in Flight 370's cockpit. Martin Savidge walks through several scenarios in a Boeing 777 simulator. CNN's Richard Quest joins the conversation and says "no one could come up with a scenario that makes sense with the facts that know so far."
