We will be bringing you the latest on a series of natural disasters and occurrences that have rattled people from Calirfonia to Indonesia.
First, the underwater earthquake that jolted the island nation and has left at least 34 people dead.
Then, we will take you live to California where wildfires have slowed, but remain a threat to thousands of residents. Reynolds Wolf will show us what rescue workers are doing now to help slow the spread of the flames.
Finally, Betty Nguyen will join us live from Mexico for the latest on hurricane Jimena. The storm slammed onto the Mexican coast with less strength than feared, but still soaking the region and forcing mass evacuations.
Nic Robertson is still in Libya and will bring us the latest on the condition of convicted Lockerbie bomber Abdel Basset Al-Megrahi, who was released from a Scottish prison early on "compassionate grounds." Sources tell Nic Megrahi, who is in the terminal stages of prostate cancer, is in critical but stable condition.
The man whose release angered so many does not appear to have long left to live.
And from Afghanistan, we'll have a live report about a Taliban attack that killed a high-level security official in Kabul along with at least 23 other people. The attack, at a mosque in the Afghan capital, is a major blow to the country's security and intelligence services and must worry NATO forces as they try to stabilize the country.
Plus, a shocking investigation into a worldwide black market for human organs. Our investigative reporter Drew Griffin will join me in the studio with more on what he and his team uncovered. You don't want to miss this.
That and the rest of the day's top news, business and sports stories.
