Officials Issue Dire Warning to Galveston about Hurricane Ike Hurricane Ike big and getting bigger, with its 105-mile winds and potential 50-foot waves on a track for Houston, the country's fourth largest city. The Gulf Coast town of Galveston has been evacuated , and the National Weather Service has warned that people who live in small homes there could face “certain death” if they stay. In Houston, officials have urged people to stay put , recalling the gridlock that killed many who jammed the roads in an attempt to evacuate Hurricane Rita in 2005. Emergency management expert Michael Lindell is a fellow at the Hazard Reduction and Recovery Center at Texas A & M University.
