(Un)Lovely Rita

Hurricane Rita, now with sustained winds of 85 mph, is raking the Florida Keys at this hour. Florida Governor Jeb Bush has told residents of the Keys that if they haven’t evacuated at this point, "now is the time to hunker down."

Rita is expected to cross the Keys into the Gulf of Mexico and gain strength over the Gulf’s warm waters. The hurricane is projected to make landfall again somewhere along the Gulf Coast this weekend.
