It has been two weeks since Ike struck the Gulf Coast of Texas and Louisiana. I have numerous friends and a couple of family members that live in the area. As far as I know, all of them survived the devastation, since many rode out the storm further inland.
I know friends in Anahuac who said the area was torn apart and a friend living in Orange suffered damage to the place where she lived. Ike tore across America, living family members in Columbus and eastern parts of Ohio without electricity for days.
I found some great photos that portray the damage and the great American spirit. Click here to see.
