Live-Blogging Hurricane Ike (10:00 PM to 11:00 PM)

Hi everybody. AC360 Review is experimenting with live-blogging. Because why not?

  • 10:58 PM--Erica Hill updates us on New Orleans area levee breaches. Lots of flooding. This is horrible.
  • 10:51 PM--Rick Sanchez still standing on the street, holding his hat on. Just take it off, dude!
  • 10:46 PM--Gary tells us the ocean looks like a scene from the movie "10 Commandments." Luckily, according to Gary, there are no "yahoos" out there. I guess they're all behind Anderson.
  • 10:41 PM--Ali Velshi still appears dry. But gas prices surging. I think the word "surge" needs to be struck from our vocabulary for a while.
  • 10:38 PM--Susan Candiotti in Clute--Talks about people who have been evacuated. Everybody out except one dude. Godspeed one dude.
  • 10:32 PM--Anderson has on the red slicker now, but he's wearing it all casual and not zipped up. Because that's how he rolls.
  • 10:23 PM--Anderson says they are 10 feet from a parking garage if they need to get inside. But you know he's going to stand out there until he's practically dragged away. Stubborn reporter.
  • 10:17 PM--Anderson talks with Galveston's mayor. Three fires so far. Can't get to any of them.
  • 10:10 PM--Things picking up for Rick Sanchez in La Porte. He holds his cap on during his whole update. It looks a little stupid. Just saying.
  • 10:03 PM--Gary Tuchman and Rob Marciano say they're starting to see debris flying around. Apparently they almost lost their sound technician (she was getting blown away) when they were moving to their fall-back position. Eek! Gary saved her. Yay! Rob is a hero too. He gave some random woman a jump. Her car, people. Her car. CNN boys are so chivalrous.

Hi Eliza,

Enjoyed your Thursday post. Hey since I live in FL, that makes me a foreign policy expert because after Cuba is 90 miles away. Unlike the Russians, Cubans are coming here all the time via boats. Can you tell me why reporters feel they must stand in the wind and rain to make thier point? They stand there yelling and holding on for dear life. I guess no one wants to make the bold first move and say this is crazy. Right now I am alternating between CNN and the Weather Channel, the volume of yelling is going up. At the same time Cheaters is on CBS here. When I last saw AC, the rain and wind was beating down, it looked like he zipped up his slicker. P.S. Bay botox has got to go. Anne D.
