Emergency alert for Texas as Hurricane Ike heads for state

Miami President Bush declared an emergency in Texas as Hurricane Ike headed towards the state. Evacuations were started on the coast and the President ordered federal aid to help local efforts to prepare for the hurricane, which killed 100 people in the Carribean. It is expected to reach Texas on Saturday.

Shell, the Anglo-Dutch oil giant, evacuated employees from its offshore installations yesterday when the hurricane hit the Gulf of Mexico, where many oil refineries are based.

The US will provide $10 million (£5.7 million) in aid to help Haiti to recover from the recent storms, a spokesman for the White House said. (AFP)
