Frances Swamps Florida, Eyes Panhandle

Frances, one of the largest storms to hit the U.S. mainland, drenches Florida on a slow trip from the Atlantic Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico. Frances, now a tropical storm, could regain hurricane strength before it hits Florida's Panhandle. Fort Pierce, Fla., caught some of the storm's early fury. NPR's Adam Hochberg reports.
