Any norm on them yet ? But what I generally expect on mobile is:
Left columns:
  1. hide and with click overlay to appear on centre-content
  2. move/minimized above centre-content, with click to expand.

Right columns:
   Move down/below centre-content

This can get messed if you have mixed/swapped content on
either left/right columns

define boxes around images
img { width: 100% }

all changes could be wrapped with carefully thought @media, eg, 
@media all and (max-width:40.000em) { ... }

On really complicated cms device/browser type sniffing, I guess ;-)
