Sept. 11th Post; Hurricane Ike

Most of you guys may remember where and what you where doing on Sept. 11th when the bad news was passed along. I was in the 4th grade and didn't have a clue to what was going on, but I did know that it was bad. Now 7 years later we are still fighting against these same terrorist and they NEED to be stopped one way or another. Even though some Americans may not want us to be in this war, but lets not forget who or what they are fighting for.

My mom's cousin was working at the Pentagon at this time and he was moving from his old office to a new one which was placed on the side that the plane crashed into. He went back to get more of his supplies when it hit so thankfully he wasn't hurt. But there where others that day who weren't so lucky in both the World Trade Centers/Pentagon/ and the Flight 93 passengers.

But as we remember Sept. 11th, we can't forget about what's going on in the Gulf. Ike has moved even further out to sea and is still a Cat.2 with winds at 100 mph. Ike is moving NW and his landfall area looks to be right around Houston/Galveston at Cat. 3 status. Here's my forecast for Ike.

* Landfall Site (Cantore's Spot): Freeport, TX (SE of Houston)

Highest Winds: 125 mph (Cat. 3)

Landfall Winds: 115 mph (Cat. 3)

Tornadoes Spawned from Ike: 10
