Florida Braces for Hurricane after Storm

As Florida works to recover from the Thursday landfall of Tropical Storm Bonnie, the state rests in the path of Hurricane Charley, a Category 2 storm expected to strike Friday. Hundreds of thousands of residents across the state's lower third have been urged to evacuate as the strengthening storm approaches. NPR's Melissa Block talks with NPR's Debbie Elliott.
