Hurricane Ike - markhumpage
House fires were a common sight during Hurricane Ike. One thing that did surprise me, whilst driving around hurricane damaged areas, was the number of property fires. I caught up with this one not long after it had started. Thankfully the residents got out in time. Fire fighters were running around like headless chickens since they had no water, ironically so close to the sea. They have a thankless job and are the true heroes in natural disasters and emergency management such as this.
