Keeping an eye on Ike

I awoke to another day of clear blue skies and bright sunshine in Key Largo, FL. Today shows no signs of dangerous Ike lurking in the Caribbean, but talk of him is everywhere. At Harriet's, a popular breakfast restaurant known for their homemade biscuits, locals were abuzz.

Most of the servers we spoke to didn't plan on evacuating. One server, a teenage girl, was excited since school was cancelled. She said her family wasn't going to evacuate because their house was made of concrete and is located 10 feet above sea level. Local officials say the storm surge is expected to be 4 feet, so the teen and her family would presumably not be flooded.
