Now at Noon: Bishop Sullivan mass, doomsday preppers, Win an iPad mini

Now at noon, a number of dignitaries, including Gov. Bob McDonell and Senator-elect Tim Kaine, are in Richmond to honor former Bishop Walter Sullivan.

Sullivan was the longest serving spiritual leader of the Roman Catholic Diocese in Richmond. 1,200 people gathered today to pay their respects. Brent Solomon is at the special mass service and will have a live report.

It was a cold start to the day, but it is quickly warming up. Meteorologist Kevin Jeanes will have a look at the forecast.

Six more victims of the Newtown school shooting will be honored at funerals and remembrances today, including the school principal who was killed with 20 of her students and five other staff members at the Sandy Hook elementary school. We'll have the latest on the tragedy.

And according to the Mayan calendar, the end of the world is just around the corner. You may not be worried, but some people known as "preppers" aren't taking any chances. We'll look into what they are doing to prepare.

Those stories and much more coming up on NBC12 News at Noon and streaming online at NBC12.com.
