Ike From Space

Snapping back to reality for a sec, check out these photos astronauts on the space station took of Hurricane Ike.

The National Weather Service has issued this warning along with it: "Those living in single-family one-story or 2-story homes should evacuate or 'FACE CERTAIN DEATH.'"

I don't think I have ever heard that associated with a storm.

Stats: Clouds and wind extend out over 245 miles beyond the eye and land could experience 10+ hours of weather before the eye gets there.

My aunt lives in Houston and she and most of her neighbors are riding it out. Which is odd considering they've evacuated (or at least gone to shelters) during other hurricanes. So I don't know why Ike is getting so much play if Houstonians (?) seem so unconcerned...hmmm
