Cuban television is showing images of the storm surge from Hurricane Ike washing over coastal homes in eastern Cuba. The storm has crashed ashore with 120 mile-per-hour winds.

Guest: Emilio San Pedro is The BBC World's Services America's editor; he spoke with us from Miami, where he'd been up all night tracking the storm.
