Forecasters expected Hurricane Ike to weaken a little as it roared across Cuba, and it has. As of 0800 Monday, Ike has become a Category 2 storm, with top winds of 105 miles per hour. “Weaken” is relative term, however — a storm surge washed over homes in Cuba last night as Ike slammed into the island’s eastern coast.Cammy Clark, Miami Herald
