Hi Charlie, actually the red mark is a measurement line, used to give some perspective on how far inland the brown vegetation spans (about 12 nm).CHARLIE said:And dont forget anothr storm went through there earlier. I am kinda confused where yur red mark I think showing the eye or impact area. Didnt think it was that far east. I know it was a big eye but it passed over Tiki, Galveston, Boliver, Dickinson, etc.
You are correct, Gustav rolled through the delta region not long before Ike which may have compromised some of the coastal areas prior to ike. Here is a comparison of the coast before and after Ike.
