Over four feet of sand is brought to the beach along the Seawall Wednesday, Jan. 7, 2009, in Galveston,Texas, to repair the damage caused by Hurricane Ike. According to Steve LaBlanc, the city manager of Galveston, the sand is being brought over to the Seawall from the East end of the island. In some places they are adding up to 200 feet of beach. The main concern is to protect the wood pylons beneath the concrete of the seawall. (AP Photo/Chronicle, Nick de la Torre )

Bolivar Peninsula, TX, December 6, 2008 -- Specially trained cadaver locating dog "Cooper" (upper left) works a pile of debris while his trainer and flanker look on. Months after Hurricane Ike left the area a disaster, final sweeps are being made to determine that no human remains are still in the piles; clearing the way for cleanup crews to move in and start removing the mess. FEMA supports this mission, along with many others, as a community recovers after a disaster. Mike Moore/FEMA

Bolivar Peninsula, TX, December 6, 2008 -- A body recovery team gets a safety briefing just before starting the day searching a debris field. Teams including cadaver locating dogs are sweeping the debris left from Hurricane Ike, enabling debris clean-up crews to move in with certainty that no human remains are there. FEMA supports this and many other efforts in communities recovering from a disaster. Mike Moore/FEMA

Ok, heres a scary thought. Imagine riding the storm out in one of these homes and seeing the 24 foot waves crashing under your home. Holy smokes!
