Looking Back on the 2004 Hurricane Season

As of Tuesday night, the 2004 hurricane season finally came to an end. Florida Gov. Jeb Bush spoke about what has happened and what is ahead for Florida.

Now that the season is over, the people of Tallahassee are talking about the way Bush handled the aftermath.

Tom Snyder said, “I think he did the best he could. His brother being the president helps."

Amie Anyder said, "As good as he can. He can't really cause it or not cause it."

In his address, Bush spoke highly of Floridians, telling stories of the strength and courage he has seen all over the state, and gave a promise of a full recovery.

Bush said, "Our recovery is going to be a long-term effort. It will not be easy. It will not be quick or without pain, but it will happen."

Finally, the governor ended the speech with his pride worn openly on his sleeve.

"I have never been prouder to be the governor of Florida,” said Bush.

Floridians say they agree it will be a long road, but they're ready to complete the recovery.
