Entering the foyer of Irv and Sharon Caplan's rambling rancher-style home just outside Stevenson in Baltimore, a visitor would never know. "What you're walking into is where a tree fell through the house," said Sharon Caplan. The initial horror at seeing their home after it was ravaged by the derecho in the summer of 2012 is now a calm narrative of loss, rebuilding and the renewed understanding of what is most important in life. "We were away at a family wedding in Houston when the storm hit Baltimore and a tree limb went through our beautiful home and then blew out," said the 71-year-old former partner in Manekin LLC, a commercial real estate corporation.

Several witnesses to the plane crash that killed two Ocean City police officers on June 30 reported seeing the aircraft spiraling toward the ocean intact, then hitting the water in a "belly flop," according to an initial report on the crash released by federal investigators. "Most described the airplane as it descended in a steady-state, nose down spin," the report by the National Transportation Safety Board found. The crash killed the pilot and owner of the plane, Thomas J. Geoghegan Jr., 43, of Ocean City , and Joshua D. Adickes, 27, of Berlin.

A fighter jet that crashed off Chincoteague Island in Virginia this month was recovered in pieces from more than 100 feet below the ocean's surface during a 15-day salvage operation that ended this week, according to the Navy. Among the salvaged wreckage was the jet's flight data recorder, which could reveal more information on how the aircraft went down. The D.C. Air National Guard pilot of the F-16C Falcon, based out of Joint Base Andrews in Prince George's County, survived the accident after ejecting and being rescued by the Coast Guard.

SMITHTOWN, N.Y. -- Stymied by a string of dead ends and partial hints, the hunt for the cause of the blast that destroyed Trans World Airlines Flight 800 shifted several miles east yesterday.Investigators had hoped that the best clues about the site and nature of the explosion that tore the jumbo jet apart would be found in the debris fields closest to Kennedy International Airport, which contained the first pieces that fell from the airplane.But with almost every scrap of aircraft retrieved from those areas, Navy divers switched their attention to the wreckage that traveled the farthest before plunging into the Atlantic.

It's designed to evoke the image of the Twin Towers: Two steel beams recovered from Ground Zero rise high into the air from broken pieces of concrete. An American flag anchors the site, flanked by red maple trees. The beginnings of a public memorial in Anne Arundel County to the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks were recently installed outside the headquarters of the county's police and fire departments on Veterans Highway. The memorial, consisting of wreckage from the site of the World Trade Center, was designed to honor the emergency personnel who died in the attacks nearly nine years ago. The Anne Arundel Arts Council, a nonprofit that received county funding, has embarked on a $50,000 fundraising drive to raise money for the finishing touches of the memorial honoring the first responders - including plaques and benches.

MINNEAPOLIS -- As U.S. Navy divers combed the gnarled wreckage of the collapsed Interstate 35W bridge yesterday, federal agents used a robot submarine, a helicopter equipped with cameras, and detailed images being captured from scanners onshore to search for the missing. But by rush hour - five days after the late-afternoon collapse - the exhaustive and minute search still yielded no word on the fate of the eight people believed to have perished. Seven previously hidden vehicles were found in the Mississippi River and amid the rubble yesterday, authorities said.

MINNEAPOLIS -- Divers scoured treacherous waters yesterday searching for victims of a deadly bridge collapse, stopping for a brief period when a rainstorm sent twisted metal, glass and debris whirling dangerously in the Mississippi River. Police released an official list yesterday of eight people missing, matching estimates that had been lowered from the hours immediately after the Interstate 35W bridge collapse Wednesday evening. In releasing the list, police cautioned that the number could still rise, saying it's possible that some victims have not been reported missing.

RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil -- A Brazilian air force search and rescue team located yesterday the wreckage of a Boeing 737 that was reported to have collided with a smaller executive jet over the Amazon on Friday afternoon. Authorities said the plane, with 155 people on board, appeared to have hit the ground vertically and that the likelihood of anyone having survived the crash was therefore remote. Gol Airlines Flight 1907 was on its way to Rio de Janeiro from Manaus, in the heart of the Amazon, with a scheduled stop in Brasilia, when it vanished from radar screens.

Ridge -- The old Woodrow Wilson Bridge sleeps with the fishes. Chunk by chunk, the bridge that linked Maryland to Virginia and was the bane of commuters in the Interstate 95 corridor, is being hauled to the waters off this St. Mary's County community to create a home for striped bass, bluefish and oysters. "This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity," said Bill Curry, president of the Coastal Conservation Association's Maryland chapter, as a massive backhoe shoved a slab of concrete off a barge and into the water yesterday.

VARANASI, India --Their hushed voices were drowned out by the howls of demonstrators. Just a stone's throw away lay the gory wreckage of Tuesday's temple blast. But inside a small square chamber on the compound of the Sankat Mochan temple yesterday afternoon, four men sat facing their monkey god and carrying out a job they had been paid to do: chanting the name of a Hindu god as a prayer for a stranger who was sick. "Om Sri Ram, jai Ram, jai jai Ram," the men muttered through the din and sensation.
