East Coast Bracing for Storms

Virginia and several other Southeastern states declared emergencies Thursday as Tropical Storm Hanna heads toward the Atlantic coast.

Forecasters say Hanna could bring high winds and rain from South Carolina all the way to Maine.

No evacuations have been ordered in advance of the storm. Hanna is expected to make landfall early Saturday.

Rain and wind from Hanna could start as early as Friday night in the South.

American Red Cross spokesman Pat McCrummen says the organization is moving supplies, equipment and people into areas Hanna might affect.

Disaster planners also are casting a wary eye to a suddenly ferocious-looking Hurricane Ike strengthening in the Atlantic.
