We have just finished with the first round of the first rain ban from Hurricane Ike. We, here in Wagoner, OK, are under a flood watch and a wind advisory. We are 535 miles from Galveston, TX.
Forecasters have predicted up to 8 inches of rain from Ike in our area. Of course, a lot depends on how quickly Ike leaves the area. If he decides to stick around for a while, we could end up with a lot more. If he doesn't like God's country, then we might see a little less.
Pray for those who it has really effected.
