Hurricane Ike–Check Out the Expected Wind Speed For Your Houston Zip Code

The expected wind speeds for the various zip codes throughout the metropolitan Houston area were shown on an interactive site pre-Ike; that page is no longer in service. However, Hurricane Ike wind speeds and other specific data such as rainfall amounts for locations along the entire track of the storm are given in the Tropical Cyclone Report, which the National Hurricane Center has recently (January 23, 2009, and updated February 4, 2009) come out with about the storm which hit the Texas coast.  It is an extensive report; look for Houston and other Texas locations on page 28. You will also need the Meteorological Converter to change kt’s into MPH.

In addition, NASA has an excellent, in-depth report on Hurricane Ike, which you can see here.
