((In places like Cocoa Beach, Florida, it's a race against time. People are rushing to buy hurricane supplies like plywood, water, and groceries as one of the most powerful storms of the century races towards the coast.
Officials are evacuating more than one million people... With potential winds reaching a catastrophic 155 miles per hour, this storm could do much more damage than Hurricane Andrew did in 1992.
That is why officials have extended hurricane warnings-- all along the entire Florida coast. And-- Florida's Governor Jeb Bush has declared a state of emergency.
Gov. Jeb Bush, R-Florida: I cannot emphasize enough how important it is for those who live on the East Coast of our state to take this storm seriously and to do everything they can now to prepare to evacuate. You cannot be too prepared for this storm.
Even at the Miami Zoo, keepers are battening down the cages...
Everyone is preparing... in Fort Myers on the west coast as well. No one it seems is willing to take any chances that Floyd will be less than a MONSTER of a storm.))

The new Standards of Learning tests in Virginia's schools have prompted Roanoke's City School Board to change a 17 year old policy that helps students succeed in school.

No problem, if you have 35-million dollars.
It's in the Neiman Marcus 1999 Christmas Book, released today.
The book is full of upscale gift ideas for those with a lot of extra cash.
Some of the gifts include original copies of "The Night Before Christmas" manuscript for 795-thousand dollars and a 96-thousand dollar virtual reality game.
Neiman Marcus will donate money to various charities when some items are purchased.
