Linda talks with NPR 's Debbie Elliott about Hurricane Georges's arrival on the Gulf Coast this morning. Georges made landfall near Biloxi, Mississippi bringing torrential rains and wind gusts as high as 174 miles per hour. The storm has stalled over the Mississippi and Alabama coasts and may dump as much as 2 1/2 feet of rain on the area over the next few days. Officials report substantial flooding and widespread power outages and fear conditions could get much worse.
