From external source:
 
Coastal storm surge flooding of up to 20 feet...with a few spots to near 25 feet...above normal tides along with large and dangerous battering waves...can be expected near and to the east of where the center of ike makes landfall. The surge extends a greater than usual distance from the center due to the large size of the cyclone. Water levels have already risen by more than 5 feet along much of the northwestern gulf coast.
