Bush says government moving quickly to save lives, feed hurricane victims

President George W. Bush said Wednesday the administration was moving quickly to save lives and provide sustenance to uncounted victims of Hurricane Katrina.

But recovery "will take years" from the storm that laid waste to the Gulf Coast.

"We're dealing with one of the worst national disasters in our nation's history," he said in a speech hours after an aerial tour of the area, AP reported.
