Florida -- Tragedy strikes a group of young Whooping Cranes that spent a week near Albany two month ago.  

Seventeen of the 18 young birds were killed in the storms that swept through their wildlife preserve on the Florida coast, southeast of Ocala.

In December, the cranes were led by ultralight planes into South Georgia on their way from Wisconsin to Florida. They were being sheltered at a wildlife refuge on the Florida coast, southwest of Ocala. They were killed in the Thursday night storms.

There was good news today, one of the birds thought to be dead was found alive, several miles from where the other birds were nesting.
