Hurricane Ike Will Strike Tonight!

Tags: , , ,

Ike is on a collision course for the upper Texas coast, with landfall forecast for early on Saturday morning between Sargent and Galveston. If Ike maintains that track, Galveston and Houston will be in the potentially lethal northeast quadrant of the storm.

While the Galveston Bay area faces the potential of widespread devastation, Ike will spread destructive wind, rain and a storm surge more than 200 miles from its center.
