Hurricanes Ike and Hanna Leave Destruction in Their Paths

On the heels of Hurricane Gustav, Hurricanes Ike and Hanna have walloped the Bahamas, Haiti, Turks and Caicos, and Cuba. For the Turks and Caicos, 80 percent of the homes on Grand Turk Island have been damaged. The devastating storm has ripped roofs and left residents cowering in closets, "just holding on for life. They got hit really, really bad." The Florida Keys have evacuated ahead of Ike's arrival.


Hurricane Ike headed toward Haiti en route to the Bahamas and Cuba. The "extremely dangerous" storm is crushing relief efforts to help the hundreds of thousands hit by last week's storms, bringing a foot of rain threatening flash flooding and mudslides.

Hanna lashed the Eastern seaboard over the weekend and her tail end is set to hit as far away as the UK on Thursday, with 100 flood warnings already in place.
