Mtv Bosses Scrap Another Day Of Pre-Vma Events As Storm Hits

LATEST: Organisers of the MTV Video Music Awards celebrations in Miami Beach, Florida have cancelled all pre-show parties for a second successive day as tropical storm Katrina is upgraded to a hurricane.

All parties and shows in the beach city, including a SEAN 'DIDDY' COMBS record label launch bash, were scrapped yesterday (25AUG05) and now all events planned for today (26AUG05) have been axed as Katrina lashed the Floridian coastline.

Two Fort Lauderdale, Florida people, who ignored warnings to stay indoors last night, were killed when uprooted trees fell on them, while communities in the area have been left devastated by damage caused by the hurricane.

MTV bosses hope to get back on schedule tomorrow (27AUG05) in preparation for the awards on Sunday (28AUG05).
