What Would Happen if “The BIG ONE” (Earthquake) Hits the WEST COAST

When most people think of the “Big One,” they often think about an earthquake caused by the San Andreas Fault. However, there’s actually a more dangerous fault called the Cascadia Subduction Zone. The Cascadia Subduction Zone, also known as the Cascadia Fault, is almost 700 miles long and stretches the west coast of North America from Vancouver Island to Northern California. For some perspective, an earthquake caused by the San Andreas Fault could reach 8.3 on the Richter scale, but a Cascadia earthquake will be more like a 9.2. That means that the quake could shake for up to four...

Does it sometimes feel as if our politics has us all backed into ideological corners? Does it seem as if insults and name-calling have taken the place of civil dialogue – that incivility has gone viral?

Jimmy Kimmel's serious side

TV host Jimmy Kimmel was always the lovable frat boy of late-night, often more playful than political. But Kimmel put comedy on hold when his on-air story about his son's fight for life became a call to action on healthcare; and following the Las Vegas massacre, his monologue turned into an emotional call for sanity, and gun control. Kimmel talks with correspondent Tracy Smith about his road to late-night, and why he's not so bothered if viewers are upset by his heartfelt monologues.
