Hurricane Ike Slams Texas Coast With Major Floods Massive Hurricane Ike ravaged southeast Texas early Saturday, battering the coast with driving rain and ferocious wind gusts as residents who decided too late they should have heeded orders to evacuate made futile calls for rescue. The eye of the storm powered ashore at 3:10 a.m. EDT at Galveston with 110 mph winds, just shy of a Category 3 storm. The surge at Galveston was 11 feet, about half of what was predicted, but leaves 2.9 million people without power.0 Comments
