President Bush tours devastation in Florida caused by Hurricane Ivan, which is now blamed for 49 U.S. deaths. Tropical storm Jeanne, meanwhile, is headed out to sea after battering Haiti and the Dominican Republic and creating storm surges in the Bahamas.

The National Hurricane Center reports that the latest storm, Hurricane Karl, poses no immediate threat to land. NPR's Jennifer Ludden reports.
