The latest of four powerful storms in this year's hurricane season ripped a path across Cuba and headed toward the oil platforms in the Gulf of Mexico.

Hurricane Ike already has left its terrible mark on Haiti and Cuba, and could make landfall in Texas or Louisiana later this week. It swept into Cuba's capital, Havana, on Tuesday.
