Forecasters Fear Hurricane Rita's Strength (AP)

AP - Rapidly strengthening Hurricane Rita lashed the Florida Keys on Tuesday and
headed into the Gulf of Mexico, where forecasters feared it could develop into
another blockbuster storm targeting Texas or Louisiana.

I'm going to quote AccuWeather.com's Expert Senior Meteorologist Joe Bastardi here:
"So let me say this about Rita...she will break northwest gulf pressure records, and I believe now pressures will get to cat 5 levels. I believe this will be the strongest hurricane to ever hit Texas."
