Miami Zoo Preparations

Linda talks to Ron Magill of the Miami Metro Zoo about the the preparations there for Hurricane Georges' arrival. The animals were taken to shelter on the zoo property, including a group of flamingoes that were kept in the men's restroom overnight. The hurricane warning was lifted from the Miami area, but Magill says that all of the work to bring the animals to shelter was worth it — more than 100 animals in the zoo were killed in Hurricane Andrew.
