On the Money

ON THE MONEY THIS WEEKEND:

Shake and Quake
Todd Halihan, Oklahoma State University Professor and Geologist
Forget tornadoes, Oklahoma's most common natural disaster is now earthquakes. More than 900 shook the state last year. Most are small, but two this year have exceeded a magnitude of 5.0. In the most earthquake-prone state in the U.S, a majority are man-made, triggered by the oil and gas industry. After drilling for oil, wastewater is injected underground, where it can disrupt fault plates deep below the earth's surface. We ask Todd Halihan, a geologist at Oklahoma State University, if this is an unavoidable part of an oil-driven economy, or if there are alternatives.

Mortgage in Reverse
Senior Personal Finance Correspondent Sharon Epperson

Senior Personal Finance Correspondent Sharon Epperson breaks down the benefits and cautions about the fine print to watch out for.

Agent in Training

And they're looking to hire nearly 1,200 employees by the end of 2017. Reporter Kate Rogers goes to the Secret Service academy for two days of intense training. From virtual active shooter drills to firearms training and more, she finds what skills are needed to make the cut and become a special agent.
