NASA Survives Frances, But What About Ivan?

NASA is assessing the damage from Hurricane Frances.
They dodged a bullet with superficial damage to the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB) and the facility that manufactures the Shuttle Thermal Protection System tiles and blankets. But with aproximately 1000 panels missing from the side of the VAB, the concern is with Hurricane Ivan. They have a week to repair the VAB should Ivan strike Central Florida.
