AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): There was a little child that was killed in Georgia, a tree fell on top of the home and killed the child, and then someone else died in Gadsden County, which is in Florida, too. Fallen tree. 

JANICE DEAN (FOX NEWS METEOROLOGIST): This hurricane was a category three when it went through Georgia. 

STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): Through Georgia. 

DEAN: Through Georgia. They have not had a hurricane of that strength in over a century in Georgia. 

DOOCY: It was one for the record books, all right, and it's still going. J.D., thank you very much. 

BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): So, the president last night was able to join [Fox News'] Shannon Bream after his rally in Pennsylvania. He wanted everyone to know that, even though he's holding the rally, he never really put the people in the eye of the storm behind him. He had them in his thoughts, he says, they're already lined up, ready to come in. I'm not going to cancel in Pennsylvania for what's happening in Florida. I think that was, overall, a good move.
