Although the devastation of hurricane Ike will probably cost millions of dollars in Galveston, TX, I give praise that the more than 2,000 residents who elected to stay were rescued and transported to a safer place.
We still need prayers for the extensive damage done by the hurricane especially Houston, Galveston and south of Galveston, TX. It is being predicted that it will take months to rebuild, and weeks for the power to come back. Some oil pipelines and platforms were also damaged in the gulf. My sympathy and support goes to the residents who live in those regions.
We should also remember the train wreck near Los Angeles, California.
