September 13th - Hurrikane Ike downgraded to tropical storm

Ike had been downgraded to a tropical storm at 1 p.m. (September 13th, 2008), as sustained winds decreased to about 60 mph (source National Hurricane Center). It will weaken further as it follows an inland path curving toward western Arkansas. Remnants of the storm will reach Missouri by tomorrow morning according to NHC.

Early damage reports indicated that several buildings lining Galveston’s seawall were destroyed, and unchecked fires were burning in that city. President George W. Bush cleared the way for Texas to receive federal disaster aid.

Ike follows Hurricane Gustav, which struck Louisiana on September 1, and Hanna, the tropical storm that made its way up the Eastern seaboard on September 6.
