NYT: Thousands in Texas Flee Hurric

NYT: Thousands in Texas Flee Hurric: "Hurricane Ike, having spun away from Cuba and roared into the Gulf of Mexico, moved toward Texas with growing strength on Thursday as thousands of people fled coastal areas.

After pummeling Haiti, Cuba and other parts of the Caribbean, the storm refueled in the Gulf and headed toward landfall somewhere from Corpus Christi northeastward to Galveston. It is expected to arrive in Texas late Friday or early Saturday and could strengthen to a Category 3 hurricane over the next day or two."
