Hurrican Ike... Yikes!

Landfall is forecast early on Saturday between Freeport and Galveston, Texas, which puts Houston and surrounding Harris County on the dangerous east side of the storm. The cloud shield from Hurricane Ike took up nearly half of the Gulf of Mexico Thursday, but as of the late afternoon hours remained at Category 2 strength, with sustained winds of 100 mph. With hurricane force winds extending 115 miles from the center and tropical storm force winds out to 225 miles, conditions along the Gulf Coast will deteriorate long before landfall late on Friday.

I feel so sorry for people that in in the way of the hurricane.

I hope it begins to deminish.

I do, too Tonya... I have a friend that works at a grocery store in TX and she said the store was PACKED last night. I am glad people are listening to the warning and I like the fact that people are told they will be on their own if they do not evacuate and listen to the warnings. This would make them think twice and we will avoid another Katrina disaster with people and pets on roofs, etc... xox
