Hurricane Ike takes track west

Hurricane Ike is expected to be in the southern Gulf of Mexico late today, but the latest projections now have the storm headed more toward the Texas coast.

Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center warn that Ike could make landfall during the weekend near the Texas-Louisiana border, possibly not far from Houston.

"While the exact location has not been pinpointed yet, all of southeast Texas and southwest Louisiana should continue to monitor the track and intensity of this storm." according to Roger Erickson, warning coordinator for the Lake Charles weather office.
