WILMINGTON, N.C. - The head of the Federal Emergency Management Administration says it looks like Hurricane Ike is``very, very, dangerous.''

FEMA could wind up dealing with the effects of Hurricane Gustav and two more storms at once. It's positioned materials along the East Coast in expectation of Tropical Storm Hanna.

Rain and wind from Hanna could start as early as Friday night in the South, where some residents and officials are already making preparations. Forecasters say Hanna could bring high winds and rain
from South Carolina to Maine.

But an even greater concern is Hurricane Ike. The Category 4 storm, with winds around 135 miles per hour, is approaching the Bahamas. Where it will head is still uncertain.
