Ike continues to weaken
At 10:00pm CDT –
– All tropical coastal warnings have been discontinued.
– The center of Tropical Storm Ike was located 100 miles
west-southwest of Little Rock, AR. Movement is towards the
north-northeast at 24mph. Maximum sustained winds are 40mph and
further weakening will occur. Minimum surface pressure is 982mb.
– Tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 105 miles from the
center, mainly to the east.
– This is the last update on Ike.
Lots of damage in southeast Texas and no need to repeat what the media
are already showing. NHC did a great job with Ike, even though it was
a difficult storm to forecast.
NHC is monitoring two systems in the Atlantic but neither of them show
signs of development.
