Well, damn...

Watching live video from KPRC in Houston.

Ike is still about 19 hours away, and already they're having huge waves crash against the Galveston sea wall and spilling over, causing street flooding... and a picture of flooding further down the coast is considerably worse!

The bay side of Galveston has no sea wall, and water is getting pushed forward, into the bay, has no place to go, and is beginning to flood the backside of the island.  People are *already* contacting the authorities, trying to get evacuated, because they can't drive out!

I sure hope not too many people are stupid enough to try to ride this one out anywhere near the coast.
