Effects of Hurricane Ike

Hurricane Ike hit the gulf coast of Texas early Saturday morning. Its destructive path has led to a lot of physical damage to the areas, but there is also much more that has caused issues. Residents' health has become a major issue in the recovery stages of Ike.

The Market Watch article was written before the hurricane actually hit the coast. It talked about how to help people who are dependent on electricity for life support to "take appropriate measures to ensure their safety" in there was a long-term power outage in the area. It later talks about other electrical precautions that residents should take to improve their safety throughout the effects of Ike.

The FOXNews.com article was written the day after Ike hit Texas. It talked about how people should be careful of all of the toxins in the air that have been blown around and mixed into the atmosphere because of the heavy winds from Ike. It also talks about precautions that residents should take when coming upon possible contaminated water or even the "increase(d) risk" for the West Nile virus.

Both articles seem to be very helpful for residents of the cities that were affected by Hurricane Ike. They give good tips of advice in a time of need.
