Frances’ Fury: Hurricane Frances (search) has already knocked out power and toppled trees in the Bahamas. Now the category three storm is heading toward Florida and more than 2.5 million people are scrambling to get out of its path.

We’ll get the latest on the storm’s progress from FOX News’ Jonathan Serrie, live in Boynton Beach, Florida.

Plus, while most people are trying to get away from Hurricane Frances, we’ll introduce you to George Kourounis, who drove all the way from Canada for a chance to chase the storm.

School Siege: The standoff at a school in Russia ends in bloodshed as commandos storm the building where hundreds of hostages were being held by Chechen (search) gunmen.

Post-Party: President Bush takes his message to the masses as the RNC wraps up a big week in New York City. How does the GOP's convention compare to what the Democrats did a month ago? We’ll take a fair and balanced look with FOX News political analysts Rich Lowry, editor of The National Review, and Ellis Henican, columnist for New York Newsday.

Friend of W: We’ll be joined by one of President Bush's oldest and dearest friends — and get this: He's a Democrat!
