there was just a story on yahoo news about a bar on the beach in galveston called the poop deck, they said that they were not going to close or put up shutters, probably not hear from them again.

To everyone, please be safe. Flooding is happening in many places already. Ike is still 200 miles away.

Jass, why is water receding in your area? Is the wind from Ike pulling water away from your area into areas west?

Good Luck to all. If you can leave, then do so, it isn't worth it to stay and risk your life or your families lives. Praying for all of you.

We are on the river, which is connected to the gulf..Main Streets like 603, 607 were shut down yesterday and today for flooding. South side of Diamondhead shut down. I am on the north side but and at the end of our street neighbors got 3' vs 4.8' on Gustav. I was just a mote on 3 sides, no water in the pool this time. If this storm would have hit Lousianna we all would have had it alot more water...I feel bad for Texas, I was hoping it would have gone towards Bienerville.

This is the canal I live on. I took this picture Wednesday morning when Ike was 200 + miles away. My wife said it was over the sea wall about lunch time, scary!

Unique storm, this thing is packing a wicked storm surge for a Cat 2, the surge is more so along the lines of a much more powerful storm. Surfside and Galveston already got nailed with the beginning of the surge (and Surfside is almost completely covered in rising water) and that was earlier with landfall still quite a ways away .
