Heat-streak / Family abuse / Seeing with sound

Heat-streak  Today is Day 11 in a record-breaking set of triple-digit days in the Sacramento region.  A National Weather Service meteorologist in Sacramento tells you why it's happening and what it means.

Family abuse  How do families recover from abuse? Local child psychologist Anthony Urquiza, who treats the parents and children of traumatized households, tells you about the processes that can help with recovery. You'll also meet a mother who has won back her children; they were abused by her former husband.  

Seeing with sound  Ben Underwood, a blind Sacramento teenager, tells you how he’s using sound to get around. It’s called echolocation and it's just one of many methods that help blind people improve their functionality in the world.
