Few Hurt In Dean's Damage

Just one day after Hurricane Dean hit Mexico, parts of the country start to assess damage and clean up.

What appears most remarkable so far is that so few people were hurt when Dean roared ashore.

It was one of the most powerful storms to ever hit Mexico, wiping out what had taken years to build-within seconds and leaving so many with nothing.

With damages estimated at more than a billion dollars, experts say rebuilding will probably take years.

President Bush is offering to help with whatever is needed.

No storm related deaths have been reported and many of the tourist attractions and resort areas were spared.
