— The Georgia Dome, which housed the Atlanta Falcons for 25 years, is set for implosion this morning.
It will come down in similar fashion to Cinergy Field, the Cincinnati stadium demolished on Dec. 29, 2002, the same day the Cincinnati Bengals dropped a road game to the Buffalo Bills, 27-9.
The longtime home of the Bengals and Reds was originally known as Riverfront Stadium. It hosted the Major League All-Star game just days after it opened June 30, 1970, and was brought down in phases at cost of about $15 million.
Today, part of the site is occupied by Great American Ball Park with some parking lots over the old site. A small portion of the Riverfront Stadium site is now occupied by the Reds’ Hall of Fame and Museum and Main Street, which was extended when the new park was built and when the old park was demolished.

Anchorage, Alaska — A 7.9 magnitude earthquake off the coast of Alaska forced families to evacuate their homes last night around 4:30 a.m. local time.
News Center 7’s Lauren Clark spoke with a Tipp City native who is now living in Anchorage and felt the effects of the quake in her home.
“The bed started to move a little bit, and I looked over at my doorway and the door was swinging,” said Miami Valley native Katherine Krupa.
Krupa moved to Alaska three years ago with her husband Joe, who is a lieutenant colonel in the US Army from Centerville.
When my husband said, "Oh, we're going to Alaska, I just never thought about earthquakes,” Krupa said.
Krupa has since learned that earthquakes are a regular occurrence in Alaska, which is located in the active Ring of Fire that surrounds the Pacific Ocean.
The Krupas home was not damaged, but friends of theirs were forced to leave their home and seek higher ground after tsunami warnings.
