Hurricane Ike

First there was Gustav.  Next came Hanna who roared up the east coast giving us plenty of rain.  And now there’s Hurricane Ike which is wreaking havoc in the Caribbean. Hurricane Ike is a Category 4 hurricane.

Hurricane Ike damages 80% of homes

The premier of the British territory of Turks and Caicos said that Hurricane Ike has damaged 80% of the homes on Grand Turk island.

Michael Misick told The Associated Press by phone that Grand Turk took almost a direct hit and that hundreds of people have lost their roofs.

He said people are cowering in cupboards and under stairwells and are “just holding on for life. They got hit really, really bad,” he said.

There are no reports of deaths or injuries, but authorities are now trying to rescue people and get them into shelters.

Ike is now raking Haiti and heading toward the Bahamas and Cuba as a powerful Category 4 storm.
