President Bush Heads To Storm Zone

President Bush is heading to Florida today for a first-hand look at the damage and frustration that have followed Hurricane Wilma.

Three days after the storm struck, many people are still struggling to find provisions, including gas and water. The President's brother, Governor Jeb Bush, says blame him not FEMA for any delays at centers distributing relief supplies. But he also says people had plenty of warning and should have stocked up on food and water for themselves.

Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff toured the region yesterday, asking for patience as the government works to deliver water, ice and generators.

The President is also to visit the National Hurricane Center in Miami, where storm forecasts are formulated.
