THIS IS VIDEO FROM SANTIAGO, CHILE. YOU CAN SEE THE CHAOS AS PEOPLE RUN THROUGH THE STREETS.

THE SIZE OF THE QUAKE HAD THE POTENTIAL TO CAUSE MAJOR DAMAGE AND A LARGE LOSS OF LIFE, BUT SO FAR THE AFTERMATH IS STILL BEING ASSESSED.

CHILE'S INTERIOR MINISTER SAYS AT LEAST FIVE PEOPLE DIED, EITHER FROM HEART ATTACKS OR BEING CRUSHED TO DEATH.

AND A SMALL TSUNAMI FORCED EVACUATIONS ALONG THE COUNTRY'S ENTIRE PACIFIC COAST.

THE QUAKE AND MORE THAN 10 AFTERSHOCKS LOOSENED LANDSLIDES THAT BLOCKED ROADS.

POWER HAS BEEN CUT TO THOUSANDS AND SEVERAL BUSINESSES HAVE CAUGHT FIRE.

OFFICIALS AS FAR AWAY AS HAWAII WORRIED ABOUT THE POTENTIAL IMPACT THERE AND ASKED PEOPLE TO STAY OUT OF THE WATER. Return to index of stories...


CHILE QUAKE-SOTVO, PLASMA


"If you're not ready for it, you can get into difficulty, and if you're in the water, you can get banged about, so we really want to keep people out of the water, close to the coast."

THIS IS THE 10TH QUAKE OFF THE COAST OF CHILE IN THE LAST 24 HOURS!

AND EXPERTS SAY THEY ARE EXPECTING EVEN MORE.

CHILE IS LOCATED IN THE "RING OF FIRE"-- WHICH GIVES EXTREME LIKELIEHOOD OF MAJOR EARTHQUAKES.

OFFICIALS SAY THAT COULD HAPPEN ANYTIME-- TOMORROW, OR 50 YEARS FROM NOW.

LIVE IN THE STUDIO, CHRISTY ANDREWS, NBC2. Return to index of stories...

MOTHERS TURNING TO ALCOHOL TO COPE WITH STRESS AND PRESSURE.

sot from mom: moms should be allowed to relax and kick back and take care of their kids, and have their mommy juice and not be judged for it.

but is this cocktail culture.a slippery slope? while these moms practice moderation.no more than one drink per playdate, and everyone walks home.experts say more and more anxious moms are drinking to excess.

FROM CARS TO CONSTRUCTION -- EVERYTHING IS PICKING UP IN SOUTHWEST FLORIDA --

THAT'S JOSH EVANS WITH J.R. EVANS ENGINEERING -- AFTER A LONG RECESSION, HE'S NOW WORKING ON 4 NEW DEVELOPMENTS --

COMMON SEVERAL YEARS AGO -- BUT WITH GROWTH THEN, CAME GROWING PAINS --

ACCORDING TO THE CENSUS BUREAU -- THE POPULATION HAS BREACHED A MILLION PEOPLE IN LEE AND COLLIER COUNTIES -- AND CONTINUES TO GROW AT ONE OF THE HIGHEST RATES IN THE NATION.

STU:

"With more people building homes and moving here -- more people are going to be on the street -- but can our roads handle it?"

Don Scott, MPO

"Does it handle a million, that remains to be seen."

DONALD SCOTT IS THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF THE LEE COUNTY METROPOLITAN PLANNING ORGANIZATION -- HE SAYS THE ROADS ARE FAIRLY GOOD -- FOR NOW --

THANKS IN PART -- TO THE RECESSION --

WHEN LITTLE GROWTH ALLOWED THE GOVERNMENT TO CATCH UP -- EXPANDING I75 AMONG OTHER ROAD PROJECTS --

COMMON CORE-OTS-CG RVL


THIS IS A BIG HEADLINE BEFORE YOU HEAD OUT THE DOOR ---

COMMON CORE STANDARDS FOR FLORIDA'S SCHOOLS.

THE ONGOING BACKLASH AGAINST THE CONTENTIOUS STANDARDS HAS PROMPTED STATE OFFICIALS AND THE FLORIDA LEGISLATURE TO ACT.

LawmakerS ARE ADVANCING BILLS THAT WOULD REMOVE MORE THAN 30 REFERENCES TO THE COMMON CORE STANDARDS THAT WERE PLACED IN LAW JUST A YEAR AGO.

THE SENATE HAS ALREADY PASSED A BILL THAT WOULD BAN SCHOOL DISTRICTS FROM COLLECTING INFORMATION ON THE POLITICAL OR RELIGIOUS AFFILIATION OF STUDENTS AND THEIR PARENTS.

IT WOULD ALSO BAN THE COLLECTION OF INFORMATION INCLUDING STUDENT FINGERPRINTS, PALM SCANS OR IRIS SCANS.

LAWMAKERS ARE ALSO CONSIDERING WHETHER TO MANDATE THAT EACH LOCAL SCHOOL DISTRICT CHOOSE TEXTBOOKS WITHOUT STATE HELP. Return to index of stories...
