We heard a loud boom a while ago, turns out it was an explosion at the Galveston Yacht Basin. Several sailboats are burning and firefighters can't get to them because of flooding in the streets.
We'lll be moving up to Clear Lake right on Galveston Bay for our 10 p.m.
An oldtimer said he was unimpressed with Hurricane Ike so far. We'll see if he bares his teeth over the next eight hours.
