We were planning on heading to Wichita Falls this weekend for a wedding shower, so we should be out of the way of the storm. The latest (10 pm) advisory had the storm moving more toward Houston and further away from Austin, as well as the Austin-WF highways.
Hurricane Ike #1
Hurricane Ike is coming! Currently, the storm’s center is 850 miles from Austin, heading generally toward the city at 7 MPH. For much of the day today, the forecast had the storm nearing the Austin area landfall, still packing quite a punch.
