I'm hearing on Fox that there is major flooding in parts of LA, worse than Rita.Quote:
HOUSTON, Texas (CNN) -- Houston officials are telling residents to stay put because it's not safe anymore to try to hit the road to escape Hurricane Ike.
The Category 2 storm had 105 mph winds as of 5 p.m. ET, according to the National Hurricane Center. It is expected to make landfall late Friday or early Saturday near Galveston, and by that time may have strengthened to a Category 3, forecasters say.
Ike is 900 miles wide, measuring the cloud cover at its widest point. On Friday, its tropical storm-force winds extended up to 275 miles -- the length of the Texas coastline -- from its center, for a total reach of about 550 miles.
I also want to see Geraldo get hit with some waves tonight. :D
There is the beginning of gasoline rationing around here. We filled up today.
