THANK YOU FOR JOINING US.

CNN HAS SPENT A GREAT DEAL OFTIME AND MONEY SCOURING OUR

WORLD FOR ANY SIGN OF THISPLANE.

IT'S A NOBLE GOAL IF THEY HADDONE IT IN A REASONABLE NON-DID

ALIENS MAYBE TAKE IT FASHION.

THE WITH ONE PLACE THEY HAVEN'TLOOKED FOR THE PLANE AS FAR AS I

CAN SEE IS UP THEIR OWN(bleep).

>> ONE OF MOST DEDICATED MEMBERSOF CNN'S TEAM DURING THE

SEARCH FOR FLIGHT 370 HASBEEN MARTIN SAVIDGE. HE HAS

SPENT ALMOST A MONTH SITTING INFLIGHT SIMULATOR IN CANADA.

IT HASN'T ALWYS BEEN THE EASIESTASSIGNMENT.

SOMEONE TWEETED BLINK THREETIMES IF YOU ARE BEING HELD

AGAINST YOUR WILL. A PUBLICFASCINATION WITH THE PLAID

SHIRTS MITCH ALWAYSSEEMED TO BE WEARING.

MITCH'S PLAID SHIRT EVEN STARTEDITS OWN TWITTER ACCOUNT.

CLARIFICATION. WE UNDERSTANDFROM THE USGS THAT THE CENTER OF

THE QUAKE WAS IN WESTWOOD,CALIFORNIA, 4.7 ON THE RICHTERSCALE.

>> Jon: BEAUTIFUL, SHORT,

FACTUAL NOT FILLED WITH BASELESSSPECULATION.

DOESN'T THAT FEEL RIGHT?

>> IS A BIGGER EARTHQUAKEON THE WAY?

[LAUGHTER]>> Jon: GO ON.

>> COULD THIS BE A SEASON OF BIGEARTHQUAKES?

>> PLENTY OF CONCERN THAT THEBIG ONE COULD BE NEXT.

>> AN 86% CHANCE OF A MAGNITUDE7.0 OR GREATER EARTHQUAKE

HITTING CALIFORNIA INTHE NEXT 30 YEARS.
