NEWS FLASH - Massive Hurricane Threatens Florida
NEWS FLASH - One million people have been ordered to
evacuate the Atlantic coast by Gov. Jeb Bush and NASA has
all but abandoned Cape Canaveral as Hurricane Floyd - one of
the most powerful storms ever to threaten the United States
this century - charged towards Florida with potentially
catastrophic 155 miles per hour winds and 18 foot waves. A
state of emergency has been declared.
Floyd is much larger than Hurricane Andrew which smashed Florida in 1992, causing $25 billion in damage, killing 26 people and leaving 160,000 homeless.
