Re: Hurricane Local Statement for IKE

I was interested to compare Ike to Katrina at the same sort of point in their lives:

Katrina on 29th Aug

Ike 12th September

I've had my eye on Ike since he was a TD. I imagine one reason the NHC is stating the warnings so strongly is because he is only Cat 2, and so people may not take him so seriously as a Cat 4/5.

Good luck to everyone who is going to be affected...
