MISSING PLANE-TRX VO PLASMA


TURNING OVERSEAS NOW,

MALAYSIA'S PRIME MINISTER VISITED AUSTRALIA TODAY TO GET A FIRST-HAND LOOK AT THE SEARCH OPERATIONS FOR THAT MISSING FLIGHT.

NBC'S KATY TUR HAS NEW DETAILS FROM KUALA LUMPUR. Return to index of stories...


MISSING PLANE-PKG


Day 27 and the basic questions still remain unanswered- the who, the when, the where, the why and the how are still lingering.

The prime minister of Malaysia traveled to Australia to take a tour of the search effort.

He thanked everybody involved and expressed confidence once again that the plane will be found but there are signs of scaling back.

There hasn't been a news briefing out of Kuala Lumpur since Monday and they are closing the media center this coming Monday.

No new sightings, no new leads in a number of days and although the criminal investigation into the crew continues, the FBI says they've concluded their search into the pilot's flight simulator and haven't found anything untoward, so it's unclear what they're going to find out of that.

REPORTER CLOSE

ANOTHER DAY OF SEARCHING, ANOTHER DAY OF NOTHING AND IT'S LOOKING MORE AND MORE HOPELESS AS TIME GOES ON.

REMEMBER THE BATTERIES ON THE BEACONS ON THE BLACK BOXES ARE SET TO RUN OUT IN JUST A MATTER OF DAYS.

It was around 11 o'clock last night that the tremors for started to be felt.

And in the coastal area of the town sirens started to wail.

This was a temporary tsunami evacuation.

The president of Chile was staying in that part of town.

She was caught up in the evacuation just like everyone else.

REPORTER CLOSE:

WHAT SCIENTISTS ARE TELLING US IS THAT SOME OF THE PRESSURE BETWEEN THE TWO PLATES OF THE EARTH'S CRUST IN THIS REGION WAS RELEASED BY THE EARTHQUAKE TUESDAY NIGHT, BUT BY NO MEANS ALL OF THAT STRESS.

AND SO PEOPLE AROUND HERE FEAR THAT ANYTIME NOW "THE BIG ONE" AS THEY CALL IT COULD BE JUST AROUND THE CORNER.

THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

SUNNY AND WARM

A beautiful day with plenty of sunshine is on the way for Southwest Florida today. We start the morning with temperatures in the upper 50s in the inland areas to the upper 60s at the coastline. You could see some patchy dense fog for your morning commute, especially in the inland areas. It will be another warm day with our afternoon high temperatures reaching into the mid 80s. Winds from the southeast will be around 10 - 15 mph with some higher gusts. Then we'll get a late afternoon sea breeze near the coastline. For tomorrow and into the weekend, we don't see any big changes in that pattern. By Sunday, there could be just a few more clouds coming into the mix.

There is another cold front headed toward Southwest Florida, but it won't be here until late Monday into Tuesday. That front will bring our next chance for rain, followed by a short-lived cool down. Return to index of stories...

FIRST ALERT FORECAST-WXWALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

SUNNY AND WARM

A beautiful day with plenty of sunshine is on the way for Southwest Florida today. We start the morning with temperatures in the upper 50s in the inland areas to the upper 60s at the coastline. You could see some patchy dense fog for your morning commute, especially in the inland areas. It will be another warm day with our afternoon high temperatures reaching into the mid 80s. Winds from the southeast will be around 10 - 15 mph with some higher gusts. Then we'll get a late afternoon sea breeze near the coastline. For tomorrow and into the weekend, we don't see any big changes in that pattern. By Sunday, there could be just a few more clouds coming into the mix.

There is another cold front headed toward Southwest Florida, but it won't be here until late Monday into Tuesday. That front will bring our next chance for rain, followed by a short-lived cool down. Return to index of stories...
