On the Radar: Twister damage, financial reform, H1N1

Morgan Hayden digs through her belongings after a tornado hit in Yazoo City, Mississippi.

Mississippi tornado - Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour plans to ask for a federal disaster declaration after a tornado hit over the weekend. Massive cleanup efforts are under way after the tornado tore through towns, killing at least 11 people - 10 in Mississippi - and leaving a swath of devastation across several states, including Alabama and Louisiana.

Financial reform showdown - Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, has scheduled a vote at 5 p.m. ET Monday to move ahead with the Senate's version of a financial reform bill. But Republicans say they still don't have a bipartisan compromise yet and they'll try to delay things until they do.

H1N1 lessons learned - It’s been a year since most of us heard the term “H1N1″ for the first time. In that time, many people have changed habits and adopted different practices in the workplace. CNN.com's Madison Park spoke to people whose lives were most likely to have been affected - a mom with small children, an emergency room doctor, a school administrator, a small-business owner, a college health care worker, a primary care doctor, someone in the travel industry. CNN talks to them about what they learned during the outbreak, the changes they’ve adopted and whether they think they will stay vigilant.

Goldman Senate documents - Goldman Sachs executives are scheduled to answer questions Tuesday before a congressional subcommittee about the company's conduct before and during the housing market meltdown. CNN looks at what to expect from the showdown before the subcommittee and follows the story of Goldman Sachs critics who say internal company e-mails show how the firm stood to make a lot of money by betting against the mortgage market.
