1. FORT HOOD SHOOTING
Nation asks why: A man opens fire at a military base, gunning down fellow soldiers before killing himself. A hero steps in, trying to stop him. A community already scarred by war is left reeling five years after another shooter hit the same base. Two days after a shooting rampage at Fort Hood, Texas, left three soldiers dead, key questions loom. Why? What made 34-year-old Spc. Ivan Lopez pull the trigger?
2. MISSING PLANE
New search, old clues: The guessing game continues as the underwater search for the Malaysian jet starts in the southern Indian Ocean. Time is running out in the efforts to detect the pings – the batteries that power the recorders’ beacons are expected to run out in the coming days. And there are no new clues on the underwater search. It’s based on the same data investigators used to determine shifting search areas in recent weeks.
3. SEVERE WEATHER
Tornado season: Spring’s here, and it’s ready to rumble. Just ask the central part of the nation, which got pounded by hail, rain and tornadoes. It was not immediately clear whether there were any injuries or damage from the severe weather yesterday.
