Ike Update

September 9th, 2008 by flanews

Despite a slight change of course and a drop in severity, some Floridians are still feeling the effects of Hurricane Ike. Wind gust up to 60 miles per hour are moving through the Florida Keys. Ike is now expected to make landfall in Mexico or Texas this Saturday. Emergency workers are warning people on Floridas coast to watch out for wind gust and tornados. State Emergency Management Director Craig Fugate says once Ike passes people need to check on their boats.

When this storm is safe you need to go check on your boats. If your boat is damaged, sunk, or leaking fluids you have the responsibility to make sure you secure your boats and provide for clean up. When its safe, go check on them, make sure they havent sunk, and theyre not a marine hazard, said Fugate.

Ike has been down graded to a category one storm. Meteorologists expect the hurricane to regain strengthen as it move across the Gulf of Mexico.
