Some of Ike's Missing May Have Been Swept Out to Sea

As the hurricane closed in, authorities estimated that 90,000 people ignored evacuation orders along the Gulf Coast.

Authorities concede that at least some of those who haven't turned up could have been washed out to sea.

One survivor told of seeing a friend wrenched from the rafters by the storm's fury and swept out to sea.

In Galveston County, where about 15,000 residents stayed behind, officials did not have an exact number of missing residents.

Like Katrina, it is criminal that we will never know the true death toll. I bet the death toll for both these storms is terrifyingly high than anyone imagines.

With thousands swept out to see many of who may have been low-income or drifters with no official identity or address or people with no family to check on them.
