leave a comment »

This computer forecast model for Hurricane Ike has it heading for New Orleans next week. Weather officials have said they expect it to be a Category 4 storm as it enters the Gulf of Mexico.

The Miami-Fort Lauderdale area could also be in Ike’s path, potentially striking the South Florida region as a Category 3 storm. Visitors were ordered to evacuate the Florida Keys on Saturday.

Meanwhile, tropical storm Hanna has made landfall in the Carolinas and is causing havoc along the East Coast, where drenching rain and 50-mph winds were expected as far north as New England on Saturday night.
