Hurricane Jeanne Headed for Florida

Hurricane Jeanne got stronger, bigger and faster as it battered the Bahamas and bore down on Florida today. The storm is sending huge waves crashing onto beaches and forcing thousands into shelters just weeks after Frances ravaged the area. About two million people were urged to evacuate as Jeanne's sustained wind strengthened to 115 miles-per-hour from 105 earlier in the day. It's expected to come ashore late Saturday or early Sunday somewhere on Florida's central Atlantic Coast and then turn to the north, a move that could devastate east and central Florida. It will be the state's fourth hurricane of the season -- an ordeal no state has had to face since Texas in 1886. Governor Jeb Bush warned Floridians not to let storm fatigue get the best of them.
