Hurricane Ike

Oak Ridge North, Texas

Hurricane Ike traveled from Galveston Texas in an arc like fashion, first going northwest, then curving to the northeast.  The Storm moved along at a steady pace, knocking down trees and flooding local waterways along it's path. 

After knocking out the electricity in Galveston and Houston, Ike essentially traveled along Interstate 45 passing the small community of Oak Ridge North, Texas. Oak Ridge North is located directly across Interstate 45 from The Woodlands, Texas and just south of Conroe, Texas.

Prior to Hurricane Ike, Oak Ridge Texas had several beautiful oak trees and of course, a lot of yellow pine trees.  There are now fewer trees in the area ( as with the entire path of Ike ) as many of them were knocked down, some on to the tops of area residences.
