4am ... Just got the latest info in. It's not good. The pressure is dropping again, and sustained winds are now at 105 mph. At present, projections are that he will make landfall as a Cat 3 (111+ mph winds).
Not good. I'll probably do #s 4 and 5 later on today ... maybe even a #6, who knows?
Wish us luck, OK?
Oh! See "Ike ... #1" for a couple of links you might want to follow. The first link updates every 10 minutes, and the second one updates whenever the National Hurricane Center updates. (I just checked the second one. It hasn't gotten the latest figures plugged in yet. Still going by the 1am advisory. The 4am one is out. It's just a matter of time before their figures will reflect the change.)
5am ... the second link (wind data per zip code) still has not been updated. Hmmph!
6am ... the second link has now been updated. Projected winds for my zip code are now 75mph. Aargh!
