Military Evacs Arrive in NorCal
The celebration in San Francisco's streets following the Giants' World Series victory started off peaceful but quickly turned raucous and violent, as revelers vandalized police cars and businesses and pelted officers with bottles. Mark Matthews reports. (Published Thursday, Oct 30, 2014)

Family members of U.S. military personnel arrived back in U.S. soil Tuesday after being evacuated out of Japan.
In all more than 500 people, including men, women, chidren, cats and dogs, were on two different flights that touched at Travis Air Force Base.
It wasn't clear where they were headed next. Finding housing for the families will be up to the military, but we don't know if they are staying here in Northern California or if they will transfer some place else.
The evacuees voluntarily left the disaster-stricken country. They did it in part to lessen the demand on scarce resources such as food, water, and fuel, according to an Air Force press release.
