A Friend of Unfair Park shot us a link to an audio-video aggregator from the Texas coast, which, from the looks of it, compiles the raw, off-air video from pretty much anyone who's got a news camera down there in advance of Ike's landfall late tonight or early Saturday morning. At least, that's what I think it is. It's streaming after the jump.

Also, this just in from City Hall: "The current registered head count at the Dallas Convention Center Shelter is 1066. Dallas Animal Services Pet Shelter update: 64 dogs, 8 cats, and 5 birds." --Robert Wilonsky

Update: A Friend of Unfair Park who also does a lot of volunteer work with the Red Cross points us to this Dallas Area Chapter posting today concerning the desperate need for volunteers, blood and money. To the latter point: "Hurricane Gustav is expected to cost the Red Cross around $70 million, with only 3% of that amount raised. In the meantime, the Red Cross is faced with the unknown challenges of Hurricane Ike."

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
