COCOA BEACH, Fla. -- Kathy Kneuer ducked under a mass of hanging cables and aimed her camera at a chunk of roof sitting on the living room floor of the beachfront rental unit she owns on this barrier island. Hurricane Frances had peeled the roof off the apartment, broken a railing that faces the Atlantic Ocean and carried an air conditioning unit clear to the other side of the parking lot. She was documenting the damage for insurance purposes. "You want to say you're prepared, and you tell yourself the worst could happen," Kneuer said.

COCOA BEACH, Fla. - Even the surfers, known for loving rough seas, had departed this barrier beach town on Florida's east cost yesterday, joining an exodus that left stores closed and roads empty in anticipation of Hurricane Frances. "I tried to ride it, but the ocean's too wishy-washy," said Johnny David, standing next to his surfboard yesterday morning. "The rip is too hard, so it's like trying to ride a washing machine."
