As I write this, Hurricane Ike is battering Texas. There are reports of heavy flooding in Galveston as well as fires that can’t be fought in the storm. Houston also reports heavy rain and fires.
The Houston Chronicle is reporting online.
So is the GalvestonDaily News.
I’ve made a donation to The Salvation Army. It’s easy to do online, and you can designate hurricane relief, or just let the Army decide where best to spend the money. My research on this organization shows that they deliver a large part of the donation to people in need and use little for administratiove services.
