Hurricane Ike warning is very, very serious

The National Hurricane Center isn't pulling any punches as Hurricane Ike approaches the Texas shoreline. From last night's Hurricane Ike statement:

ALL NEIGHBORHOODS...AND POSSIBLY ENTIRE COASTAL COMMUNITIES...
WILL BE INUNDATED DURING THE PERIOD OF PEAK STORM TIDE. PERSONS
NOT HEEDING EVACUATION ORDERS IN SINGLE FAMILY ONE OR TWO STORY
HOMES WILL FACE CERTAIN DEATH.

Yeesh. I hope this hurricane somehow loses strength before making landfall.
