Does anyone know what happened to the Pentagon in Chaos Earth? I can't remember seeing/reading anything about it.

i don't think it's been mentioned yet. It would have been hit by the tidal wave at the beginning of the cataclysm.
given that said tidal wave appears to have leveled most non-reinforced surface structures (if the evidence from the rifts books on new york and florida are anything to go on), odds are that the building would be in pretty bad shape. there might be some survivors in underground sections (we know that the Republicans moved into D.C.'s subterranean areas during the following dark age, indicating that the maze of tunnels, bunkers, basements, and storm drains survived) but they'd be stuck in survival mode since communications are down completely. (in the CE mainbook we are told that communications with the coasts goes completely silent)

Comment: The silent thief of Rozrehxeson.
From page 10 (bold emphasis mine):
Quote:
In the United States, New York City, Washington D.C., Boston, Baltimore, Savannah, Orlando, Miami and the entire Eastern Seaboard are... gone. Tens of millions of lives snuffed out in a matter of minutes! The West Coast shares the same fate.


And pages 17-18 (bold emphasis mine):
Quote:
"General! Did you hear me? It... it's worse than anything we ever imagined!" That was Colonel Jared Nelson. She had forgotten he and his three assistants had come into the room with the latest report.
"New York?" She asked out of routine. "Gone."
"Survivors?"
"None."
"None, at all?"
"It's impossible to know, but as far as we can tell, none."
"Washington?"
"Confirmed, gone."

"Virginia?"
"The entire Eastern Seaboard is gone, General. From the Gulf Coast to Greenland it's... it's all... gone. Same story for all coastal communities. Gulf States too."
