Tropics Update

Gustav is our main focus tonight and Tuesday, but I wanted to make you aware of two other storms out in the tropics. One is hurricane Hanna, the bottom left image, which is effecting parts of the Bahamas. This storm is expected to turn northwest and head towards either the Florida, Georgia, or Carolina coast. The other storm is Ike, the bottom right image. Ike could be a player next week with some models sending him into the Gulf of Mexico. Stay tuned!

I've got a question, well two, first:can you again give me what Saffir-Simpson scale ratings are. Also, if a cat. 5 hurricane was to hit Galveston, what cat would be it over Lufkin area and what kind of damage could be expected. Thanks!
