Hurricane Ike is the most damaging hurricane to hit Texas in 25 years. Jeff Masters, director of Weather Underground, a private commercial forecasting service, said the costs of Ike's rampage could reach U.S. $22 billion, which would make it the third costliest U.S. hurricane on record behind Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and Hurricane Andrew in 1992.
