Center of Ike less than 40 miles from Galveston

11:20 p.m.

The center of Ike at 11:20 was 37 nautical miles southeast of Galveston Island. I placed a red marker on the coast at the site of the historic Hotel Galvez.

Numerous areas have received wind gusts in the 60's. The highest gust I have heard reported so far was 68 at the galveston Pleasure Pier.
