The Art Squad: After an earthquake struck Italy last month, rescuers are now searching for thousands of pieces of artwork lost in the devastation
Following a magnitude 6.2 earthquake that devastated parts of central Italy in August, rescue efforts are continuing, but not for survivors. The powerful quake killed nearly 300 people, left thousands homeless and caused nearly $5 billion in property damage, including ancient structures and other works of art that contribute to Italy's rich cultural heritage. Thousands of significant pieces of artwork have gone missing in the earthquake zone, with an intensive search now centered on the hard-hit town of Amatrice. The search is being conducted by a group of fire and rescue service workers known as the Art Squad. Christopher Livesay reports on their efforts and the race against time.

Florida's Latino Vote (#628H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVRE
Florida's Latino Vote: Central Florida is being viewed as a swing region by both presidential candidates
With 29 electoral votes, the battleground state of Florida is again considered the richest toss-up state in this year's presidential election. But one constituency there is getting a lot of attention from both candidates. Hundreds of thousands of Latino voters from cities like Chicago and New York, and immigrants from the Caribbean and South America, have flooded into central Florida during the last decade. Latinos account for half of the 1.5 million people added to the state's population since 2010, and overall they account for 15% of the state's registered voters. While voters in northern Florida lean Republican and southern Floridians tilt Democratic, an area between Tampa Bay and Orlando is now being viewed as a swing region. Ivette Feliciano reports on issues that may sway Latino voters.
