Hurricane Ike

From all the indications, Hurricane Ike is going to have a major impact on the Texas coast during the next 36 hours.  Ike is a huge storm with category 2 winds (as of now, perhaps 3 by landfall) but since it is immense, the storm surge is going to cause the most damage on all sides of the point of landfall.  Winds will be a large problem nearest the landfall, but surge is going to be a problem all along the coast. You can join the discussion here:
