On behalf of the State of Texas, Anita and I extend our deepest thanks to all those in Travis County and surrounding areas who worked so hard to support Texans displaced by Hurricane Ike. More than 16 shelters in the area helped house more than 2,800 Texans who fled the coastal region in advance of this massive storm. Considering that 1.2 million Texans moved inland before Ike roared ashore, there were, no doubt, countless others who took shelter in the homes of family and friends.
