(( After a week of attacking Al Gore's character, today George W. Bush was defending his own. GEORGE W. BUSH, REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: "It's become clear to America that in the course of this campaign I have made mistakes in my life. But I'm proud to tell you I've learned from those mistakes."
But a day after being forced to admit he was arrested for drunk driving -- the Bush camp was struggling to put to rest questions that the Texas Governor had covered it up. KAREN HUGHES, BUSH COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR: The only time Governor Bush has ever been previously asked whether he had ever been arrested for drinking, he responded, quote, "I do not have a perfect record as a youth."
That record goes back 24 years -- when the Texas Governor pleaded guilty to a misdeamenor of driving under the influence.
He had kept it a closely guarded family secret -- not even his twin daughters knew. And with only four days left before election day -- the Bush camp claims the leak was timed for political gain. KAREN HUGHES, BUSH COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR: "I think the Democrats owe the American people an explanation."

The Gore camp says it's not responsible. And says it has no ties to this man -- Tom Connolly -- who released the information to a reporter last night.
A self-procalimed Democrat, he says voters were entitled to know. Voters aren't so sure. .won't make any difference.." LEE COWAN/CBS NEWS: "But while voters may claim it doesn't make a difference, - the charge does distract from the Governor's message in the final days of tough campaign -- a campaign where everyone knew anything could happen. Last night, it did. Lee Cowan, CBS News, Saginaw, Michigan."))

On November 4th, 1985, most people in the Valley had more to worry about than the election that day.
More than six and a half inches of rain fell in a 24 hour period. Most of Downtown was flooded as the Roanoke River reached 23 feet. That's about twice the flood stage. Roanoke photographer Tommy Firebaugh fought the waters to capture the historic event on film. He has devoted part of his webpage to the pictures he made that day. Firebaugh has won numerous awards for his pictures. Along with his flood photographs, he has spent years documenting the history and scenes of the Valley.

Pressure inside the (Sue-free-air) Soufriere volcano appears to be growing and scientists fear an eruption may be imminent.
Several thousand people were evacuated to northern areas of the island, other parts of the Caribbean and England after the volcano erupted in June 1997, killing a number of people.
The acting governor of Montserrat last week told residents to keep clear of the eastern slopes of the volcano. He said the exclusion zone in that area would be strictly enforced.
The warning comes after the local Volcano Observatory reported the dome of the (Sue-free-air) Soufriere continued to grow and that a collapse was likely.
