Hurricane Ike covered more than half of Cuba in this image, taken by the Expedition 17 crew aboard the International Space Station from a vantage point of 220 statute miles above Earth. The center of Ike was near 22.4 degrees north latitude and 82.4 degrees west longitude and moving 290 degrees at 11.7 miles per hour.
Ike came ashore in Texas at 2:10 a.m. CDT, Sept. 13 and brought a wall of water over 20 feet high, sweeping through Galveston Island, and on the mainland. The storm made landfall with sustained winds near 110 mph, just 1 mph short of a Category 3 hurricane.
