Bush Surveys Hurricane Damage in Florida

President Bush takes an aerial tour of Southwest Florida, where Hurricane Charley struck Friday with deadly force. Thousands are homeless and hundreds of thousands are without power in the center of the state. Property damage to insured homes is estimated at $11 billion -- just a portion of the storm's ultimate total. Hear NPR's Phillip Davis.
