Ike is about to devastate Texas and the third result in google is from Spet 4th and is not accurate at all. Weak.

It clearly states at the beginning of this page that there is a more a recent and updated entry about Hurricane Ike. Obviously this entry was only accurate for the date and a few days after it was posted on. This is a storm that is moving. Open your eyes and read properly.

i think that we have done and learned alot more than we did when hurricane katrina hit. we know more about how to evacuate and prepare for this type of thing. and thankfully we have many lovely, and nice people to help us rebuild any community destroyed by the hurricane.

staring into the darkness
i touch my cheek and feel the
wetness from my tears
the note in my hand
it took me a lifetime to write
in deep description why i had to
end it here
and now
my other hand occupied
by a rough, shiny, metal object
the cuts felt so good for so long
but the pain finally took over
it had created a dark cloud above
my head
i hear someone in the house
need to do this fast
the pain flows from my body
i am free

Wow. This shows how hard hurricanes are to predict. First Florida, then the true path?
