Weakened Lili Leaves Louisiana Bruised but Relieved

NPR's Greg Allen reports on the damage that Hurricane Lili caused in southern Louisiana. Although power lines fell, trees snapped, and some towns were flooded, the storm blew ashore with far less than the 140 mile-an-hour winds it contained just hours before. By the time Lili reached the coast, it was downgraded from a Category Four to a Category One hurricane.
