Good Evening -- I'm TF.
Floridians are barricading their homes tonight in preparation for Hurricane Georges. The Hurricane has raked the Florida Keys with sheets of rain and 105 mile-an-hour winds. But it spared Florida the kind of devastation that left at least 300 dead across the Caribbean. Drew Levinson is live in Naples with more on the storm.

It took Benoit Lecomte two months to swim almost four thousand miles across the Atlantic Ocean.
When the Frenchman came ashore today, it took him only a few minutes to pop the big question.
When Lecomte removed his flippers, the message, "Will you marry me" was painted on the bottom -- and his girlfriend accepted.
Lecomte's swim raised nearly 200-thousand dollars for cancer research.
