So far the beach is washing away and some beach houses are already filled with water and Ike is still several hours off shore.
Galveston is below sea level and it doesn't take much water to fill it up. With the rain they've been having they already have more water than they can bare.
I know there are a few ridiculous souls who simply refuse to evacuate, while others feel they have good reason to stay and hold down the fort. This is not the time to be a hero.
Get out. Be safe. Live. Evacuate.
To all my Gulf Coast cyber buddies . . . be safe.
Until next time . . .
