Dozens of people are still missing and feared among the growing number of dead. rescue workers have been out since the early morning hours listening for cries of help and using infrared heat-sensing tracking scopes to locate trapped victims.

Megan's Law will stay on the books in New Jersey. The Supreme Court rejected a constitutional challenge to the law, which requires authorities to tell communities the whereabouts of convicted sex offenders. It's been adopted by 36 other states. Lawyers for sex offenders had argued that the notification measure violates the Fifth Amendment's protection against being punished twice for the same crime.
Megan's Law is named for Megan Kanka. She's the seven-year-old girl who was raped and murdered in 1994 by a twice-convicted sex offender who lived across the street from her home.

Karen's donated blood was brought to U-V-A from a cord blood bank in New York where it's frozen.
The next step is washing the blood in a laminar air flow unit to ensure it remains sterile.
Then a cell counts is done to tell the doctor how many cells per kilogram of blood the patient is getting during the transfusion.
The process is fairly simple from there, the placenta and cord blood is infused into her central line which goes into one of her main veins.
One clinical advantage is the blood is plentiful, but there are disadvantages because the amount of blood is limited for a larger patient.
