Ike is on the way
It's too soon to tell for sure, depends on what Ike does over Cuba. If the hurricane stays over land, it could weaken dramatically. If it skirts to the north, it could gain strength in the Gulf. At present it has sustained winds of 135 mph. Present projections have it taking dead aim at Houma - the same path that Gustav followed.The forecasters believe that they can have a good idea of where landfall will be by Monday night.UPDATE: SundayThe NWS is now predicting a more westward course toward the Texas coast.
