Coming up on this CNN Sunday Morning...

The Chilean government is expected to update the number of casualties from Saturday's massive pre-dawn earthquake this morning. Preliminary estimates put the number of dead at more than 300.

The 8.8-magnitude quake spawned tsunami waves that raced across the Pacific Ocean, but official fears of destruction went unrealized.

Josh Levs hits the internet to see how social media played a critical role during the Hawaii tsumami scare and how it's helping Chileans find missing friends and family.

Folks in the U.S. northeast are digging out from a third round of winter weather to hit in a month. Meteorologist Bonnie Schneider's in for Reynolds Wolf and is following that for us.

Betty Nguyen sits down for a one-on-one, two-part interview with Tibetan Spiritual Leader the Dalai Lama. That's coming up in our 6 o'clock hour. UPDATE: We've pushed this special interview to air next weekend.

Join Betty and Josh, with Rob Marciano sitting in for TJ Holmes on this CNN Sunday Morning, beginning 6am ET/ 3am PT.

He shoots, he scores– with one hand.

Zach Hodskins was born with one arm, but his condition has not stopped him achieving his hoop dreams. He can knock the lights outta the net– he can pass, he rebounds like a fiend– Zach does it all. You barely even notice that he does it all– with one hand. That's what makes this star and inspiration too.
