Tornado Warning Sends President Bush to Shelter

President Bush and first lady Laura Bush were driven to a tornado shelter on their ranch in Crawford, Texas, Friday afternoon after weather forecasters issued a tornado warning for the area.

According to a White House spokesman, the Bushes and their two dogs were driven from their house to the shelter in an armored vehicle, but it was determined they did not need to go inside the shelter.

The spokesman said the President and Mrs. Bush did not spend much time inside the armored vehicle.
