Hurricane Georges

All Things Considered host Linda Wertheimer talks with NPR'S Wade Goodwyn in Key West, Florida, about Hurricane Georges' arrival in the Florida keys today. The Hurricane pounded the island chain with 105-mph winds and heavy rain. Authorities in the keys say there are widespread reports of damage from wind and flooding, but no reports of deaths or injuries. Georges has already killed more than 300 people in the Caribbean and left many more homeless. The storm is heading up Florida's west coast and is expected to strike the north coast of the Gulf of Mexico later this weekend. [4:00]
