Statesman team uses Twitter to cover Hurricane Ike | graphic designr

"Reporters Marty Toohey, Tony Plohetski and Patrick George, and photographer/videographer Jorge Sanhueza-Lyon (who Twittered about Hurricane Gustav as @trackinggustav; he has renamed the account @digitaljournals) all updated @trackingike from Corpus Christi, Houston, Galveston, Beaumont. Internet editor Robert Quigley provided updates, support and answered questions from Austin. He explained that the journalists split into two teams, starting in Corpus Christi, then Houston. Both teams went to Houston for the landfall. One team moved to Galveston on Saturday morning. The other team went to Orange/Beaumont, then back to Houston at night. Hurricane Ike made landfall at Galveston at 2:10 a.m. Saturday."
