Downed trees close one lane to traffic in West Boynton Beach Florida.
Cars pass in single file through a West Boynton Beach, Florida, street as downed trees closed one lane to traffic, September 5, 2004. Hurricane Frances whipped off roofs, felled trees and cut power to about 4 million people in Florida on Sunday as the huge and powerful storm lumbered over the state with ferocious winds and sheets of rain. The hurricane was so large and slow-moving that its western outer edges had begun arriving on the east coast on Saturday morning and by Sunday morning its eastern edges were still pounding the coast from which 2.5 million people had been told to flee.
