Britain's Brexit vote and its effect on the economy

LAS VEGAS - Friday was a bad day to keep track of your 401K account, especially after the United Kingdom made a game-changing move and voted to leave the European Union. 

The United Kingdom consists of Great Britain, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.  The rest of Ireland is its own country.

The move comes after 43 years in the European Union.

The so-called Brexit hammered the stock markets Friday as the Dow lost more than 600 points.  It was the worst drop in ten months.

But what exactly does this all mean?  8 News NOW Christianne Klein has been looking into the EU exit and she has the details to help everyone make sense of it all.
