NEW YORK - With Hurricane Ike cutting a savage path through Texas, Barack Obama cancelled plans to appear on the season premiere of the TV programme Saturday Night Live.
He instead asked voters to consider the "quiet storms" taking place in the lives of many Americans as they weigh their choice in the presidential race.
After Obama asked supporters to send prayers and donations to victims of the Gulf Coast storm, he aggressively attacked his Republican rivals. He argued that John McCain would do little to improve the nation's economic condition.
While he pared back his campaigning because of the hurricane, his criticism of McCain reflected the new urgency of the contest.
"John McCain doesn't get it," Obama, the Democratic presidential nominee, said on Saturday. "He doesn't know what's going on in your lives. He is out of touch with the American people."
McCain, the Republican nominee, took a day away from campaigning on Saturday, but his running mate, Sarah Palin addressed a rally of hundreds of people in Anchorage before setting off for several weekend appearances in battleground states and her first campaign swing without McCain.
Palin expressed "concern and support" for those in the hurricane region and called on the group "to show our Alaskan heart" for those suffering losses.
Along with what has become her stump speech, Palin lavished affection on her home state and promised to carry its message to the rest of the country.
"I pledge to do my level best and to be worthy of the confidence that this beautiful state has put in me," she said.
Palin reminded the crowd of the state's sparse population.
"Thank God for that. We're small enough to be family. And we can look past some political differences to work as a family." - New York Times
