Ike puts Louisiana on alert
In Louisiana, Gov. Bobby Jindal declared a state of emergency Sunday for Ike and urged residents to get ready to head north again. He said so-called “hurricane fatigue” should not prevent people from evacuating their homes for the second time in 10 days.
“We are likely going to have to become accustomed to evacuating more frequently than when we were younger,” Jindal said.
A tropical storm warning was in effect for the Keys.
