    The short - but eventful - life of Ike

    In its brief lifespan of only 13 days, Hurricane Ike wreaked great deal of havoc. Affecting several countries including Cuba, Haiti, and the United States, Ike is blamed for approximately 114 deaths (74 in Haiti alone), and damages that are still being tallied, with estimates topping $10 billion. Many shoreline communities of Galveston, Texas were wiped from the map by the winds, storm surge and the walls of debris pushed along by Ike - though Galveston was spared the level of disaster it suffered in 1900.

    For a category 2 hurricane this storm did a hell of allot more damage then I thought it would do...

    Most of my family on my moms side lives in and around the Houston area and have been affected in some way . In particular my grandparents who live closer to the Galveston area are still without power :(

    Thanks for showing these bro, it really gives a good idea on what it's like over there right now.
