Florida is getting ready for a double dose of Tropical Storm Fay. The storm has already hit the Florida Keys. It's now in the Gulf of Mexico and headed for the mainland of Florida. Fay could dump a foot of rain in some places. And, here's the shocker: total storm damage in the U.S. from Fay is expected to top one billion dollars. How is that possible? We'll check in with 360's Gary Tuchman who's in Florida for us tonight. We'll also get the latest on Fay's path from CNN meteorologist Chad Myers.
Onto politics, it's expected Senator Barack Obama will announce his V.P. choice sometime this week, before next week's democratic convention. We're told it will begin with a text message and/or e-mail to supporters. Tonight, CNN's Candy Crowley will run through the possible picks this veep season.
And, a desperate search continues in the Grand Canyon. 11 people are still missing and nearly 300 others have been rescued from flood waters caused by a breached dam. The water rushed down into two canyons on the Havasupai Indian reservation and put several hundred residents and tourists in danger. We'll have a live update from Arizona.
All that and more starting at 10pm ET.
Hope you'll join us.
