Ike spares Cuban capital

Hurricane Ike rattled Havana after its second landfall in Cuba but the eye of the storm has now passed out to sea.

Thousands of people have been forced into shelters as winds toppled trees, damaged homes and brought power lines down in parts of the city.

Four Cubans have died since the hurricane first hit on Sunday.

Michael Voss reports from Havana.
