Ike to make driving conditions poor in Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri

While all the attention early Saturday was focused on the Greater Houston area as Hurricane Ike slammed ashore, officials warned truckers that less-than-desirable, and perhaps just plain unsafe, driving conditions would prevail today through parts of Texas, Arkansas, Missouri,  parts of eastern Oklahoma and portions of western Louisiana.

Early today, forecasters said the center of the storm was still expected to turn north out of Houston, move almost due north through Texas and then turn northeast and traverse Arkansas tonight and Sunday and Missouri Sunday.

In addition to the heavy rain and possible tornadoes, straight line winds — some still reaching hurricane level force — would be felt as far inland as east Central Texas and wind gusts as high as 40 mph could be felt in northeast Texas Saturday and through Arkansas Saturday night and into Sunday.   More from The Trucker
