Jimmy Carter Addressing The Convention By Video

Former President Jimmy Carter, who was scheduled to speak at the Democratic National Convention in person, will instead address the delegates via a video taped message.

Two days ago, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reported that an oak tree fell on the Carters' home in Plains, Georgia.

Tropical Storm Fay sent an oak tree into the Plains home of former President Jimmy Carter Saturday night, a family member confirmed.

Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter were at home at the time, but neither was hurt, their son said. Chain saw crews were on the way to the residence late Saturday to assist in the cleanup, he said.
