Officials from the National Hurricane Center in Miami say Hurricane Ivan is moving toward the west-northwest near 13 miles per hour, and is packing winds of 140 miles per hour.More than three-quarters of a million Floridians are still without power from last weekend's hurricane and they are about to get hit again. Ivan is expected to hit the Florida Keys Monday. Residents are boarding up windows, stocking up on canned food or are fleeing inland. The Category Five hurricane flattened homes and killed at least 50 people in the Caribbean.
