Everyone who lives along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico needs to keep a very
close eye on Ike. Morning time Friday morning (about 36 hours before this post) the National Hurricane Center had Ike coming ashore between Miami and the Upper Keys. Now that track has moved about 12 to 15 degrees farther west, and Ike may pull another Gustav on us, as the current track looks like it's headed for New Orleans in about 6-7 days (it's too far out right now to tell).
However, it could continue to move south and west, and come in anywhere along the Texas coastline, too.
So, everybody along the Gulf coast keep an eye on Ike, and be ready to evacuate when advised to. We don't want anyone getting hurt!
p.s., if you life along the Gulf or Atlantic coastline, you might want to bookmark the National Hurricane Center website: http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/
. IMO the best possible hurricane information around for the US.
