Dennis roars on towards US.

HURRICANE Dennis dealt a glancing blow to the Florida Keys yesterday, knocking out power lines and leaving streets flooded with seaweed as it roared toward the storm- weary coast of the Gulf of Mexico, where nearly 1.4 million people were under evacuation orders.

The hurricane, blamed for at least 20 deaths in Haiti and Cuba, carried a threat of more than six inches of rain plus massive waves when it makes land somewhere along the coast of the Florida Panhandle, Alabama or Mississippi.

A hurricane warning was in effect from the Steinhatchee River, around 130 miles north of Tampa, Florida to the Louisiana-Mississippi border.
