Evacuees can return
Evacuees from the Florida Keys are now permitted to return home, having been spared the wrath of Hurricane Ivan. Authorities this morning lifted the evacuation orders that began Thursday for tourists and residents in the Keys. In the state's Panhandle, authorities are expected to decide today whether to order evacuations. As one building contractor put it, Ivan is a "scary-looking hammer knocker." During the weekend, residents of communities along the Gulf of Mexico boarded up their windows and stocked up on food -- as Ivan tore through the Caribbean.
