Live-Blogging Hurricane Ike (9:00 PM to 10:00 PM)

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

  • 9:56 PM--Erica Hill confirms one Ike-related death. A man swept out to sea.
  • 9:53 PM--Hey, Dan Rather! He's safely in a studio this time.
  • 9:46 PM--Gary Tuchman and Rob Marciano have fallen back from the beach to a parking garage. I exhale a little.
  • 9:41 PM--Anderson getting rain in Houston. Chad says Houston will get 85 MPH winds at the surface and even stronger winds on upper floors of high rises. He also goes "Mother Hen" on Anderson, urging him to find a safe place from the inevitable broken glass. Aw. Anderson better listen.
  • 9:35 PM--Oh, drunk, loud people behind Anderson. It's a party! Anderson is not thrilled.
  • 9:33 PM--Rick Sanchez in La Porte. He's getting wet, but not wearing a red slicker. Hm. Anderson tells him it looks like it's coming straight for him. Rick's reply? "Well, great."
  • 9:24 PM--Some possibly drunk dude does a weird dance-type thing as he walks behind Anderson's shot.
  • 9:16 PM--Erica Hill with news that a temporary levee has failed in New Orleans. Homes flooded. Damn.
  • 9:11 PM--Gary compares the storm surge to the height of Yao Ming, who "plays for the Houston Rockets, by the way." Just a little sports tidbit with your hurricane coverage.
  • 9:06 PM--Back to Gary and Rob. They're getting 90 MPH gusts. Power is out. Probably will have to leave soon. Gary claims his hotel is safe. I will still be worrying.
  • 9:04 PM--Ali Velshi in Baytown for the lowdown on the refineries. They're shutting them down. Price of wholesale gas is peaking. Ali is dry for now.
  • 9:03 PM--Chad Myers in the Weather Center.
  • 9:02 PM--Gary Tuchman and Rob Marciano in Galveston. They're all slickered-up. Very wet and windy. No sound unfortunately.
  • 9:00 PM--Anderson Cooper in Houston. A little windy, but no rain yet. Rocking the black tee shirt. Sorry, I'm nervous and therefore must point out irrelevant things.
