The Hurricane Warning continues for the mid to upper Texas and central through western Louisiana coasts. Hurricane Ike's center is approximately 155 miles southeast of Galveston and 270 miles east of Corpus Christi-Texas.
Landfall of the eye of Ike is still expected near Galveston a few hours either side of midnight.
Here in the Central States and in and near Metro Kansas City is a risk of tornadoes as great as that of areas along the Gulf coast in Ike's outer bands (see/click on NWS-SPC image).
