Florida Helps With IDs for Evacuees

Florida plans to issue driver's licenses and identification cards to people from Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama who fled Hurricane Katrina.

Some evacuees don't have any form of identification, and that's making it tougher for them to get the help they need.

The newcomers can visit any driver's license office in Florida to get free identification cards. Driver's licenses cost $20.

The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles says the state has safeguards in place to make sure driver's licenses and ID cards only go to eligible people.
