Jeff Flock on bad weather and vote recounting in Palm Beach County

CNN Correspondent Jeff Flock has been covering the manual recount in Palm Beach County, Florida, where officials were in the process of recounting 275,000 ballots by hand. Saturday brought inclement weather to the scene of the crucial presidential recount.

Q: How have Saturday's heavy rain and high winds affected the recount?

Flock: Apparently there is flooding all over Palm Beach County this morning. A real deluge came in and blew away three-fourths of the tents where many of the TV folks were set up. In addition, there is flooding in various places ... cars underwater, et cetera. Some (officials) have raised the question of whether the foul weather would force county emergency workers to take over the building where the hand vote recount is being done. But so far that's not expected to happen.

Q: How has the weather affected the protester turnout?

Flock: There are a few who have donned trash bags in the rain. Turnout is low ... all of them pro-Bush. Yesterday we found as we were leaving there were people among the protesters who were Bush campaign workers who had been told to come down to Florida. Some of those people were wearing shorts and cut-offs and holding signs.

Q: What did some of the signs say?

Flock: Among my favorites was, "You screwed with my vote and now I have a pregnant chad." Some of the demonstrators yesterday included Gore-Lieberman supporters.

Q: When will the recount be finished?

Flock: In terms of the speed of the vote, at the rate they're going now, approximately 165 votes counted per hour, the board would need more than 51 hours to complete its count. At that rate they won't finish before the 5 p.m. Sunday deadline imposed by the Florida Supreme Court.
