Hurricane Michael: One Mile of Devastation in Florida!

We used aerial images of Mexico Beach taken before and after Hurricane Michael to assess the extent of the damage along a 1.2-mile stretch of the town. Of 440 buildings we could identify, 237, or 54 percent, were destroyed and 99, or 23 percent, were severely damaged — almost all of these were homes. The level of damage sustained by the remaining structures was unclear.

Child ate by a giant prehistoric bird!

One Neanderthal child had a very bad day about 115,000 years ago. The child died — that much is certain — and the bones were gulped down and digested by a giant, prehistoric bird, according to archaeologists in Poland.

The Neanderthal's bones were found in Ciemna Cave, which researchers have been excavating for decades.
