A beachfront home stands alone amid the devastation from Hurricane Ike in Gilchrist, Texas, on September 14, 2008.

As the storm approached the U.S. Gulf Coast on Saturday, an estimated 140,000 Texas residents refused to evacuate when ordered to do so, the Associated Press reported.

Now Texas has engaged in the largest search-and-rescue operation in its history, already saving more than 2,000 people left in the storm's wake.
