Hurricane Ike building into a big storm

Hurricane Ike
Although hurricane Ike is a few days away from the United States, it currently looks to be the most threatening storm heading towards the U.S. mainland this year. Predictions have it at a CAT4 ( 131-154mph wind) with the current path of south Florida. As someone with family in Delray Beach, this storm has me sitting up and taking notice. We are obviously in the middle of a strong hurricane season with Gustov recently coming ashore in Louisiana, Hanna projected for the Carolinas and Josephine moving westward across the Atlantic Ocean. Better get those hurricane shutters and plywood ready!
