The news begins anew with "Studio B"... And Shepard is LIVE from Port Arthur, Texas!

Hurricane Rita (search) may be one of the biggest hurricanes ever to hit the United States.

The tempest is expected to make landfall in just a few hours. We'll tell you exactly where she's headed, when she'll make landfall, and what forecasters say we can expect from this dangerous storm.

We have reporters all along the Gulf Coast (search) with the very latest on the preparations as Rita closes in.

And, we’ll have live reports from Ed Rappaport at the National Hurricane Center (search) and Rick Reichmuth in the FOX Weather Center on Rita’s path.

And, as the mass exodus continues along the Gulf Coast, giant traffic jams are causing some evacuees to run out of gas all along the Lone Star state's clogged highways. What is the government doing to help the stranded motorists? We’ll ask Mark Cross of the Texas Department of Transportation.

This story and much more today on "Studio B"!
