GALVESTON, Texas (AP) - A ninth death has been reported in the wake of Hurricane Ike.
The latest fatality is 4-year-old Houston boy whom authorities said died of carbon monoxide poisoning today. They say he was overcome by fumes from his family's generator, which was inside his home.
Five other deaths were in Texas, including three found dead in Galveston today. One was found in a submerged vehicle near the airport.
A weeklong curfew daily from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. has been announced for Houston. Most of the nation's fourth-largest city is still without power. And the weather hasn't been cooperating along the Southeast Texas coast today. Showers dropped heavy rain on areas already flooded by Ike, and forecasters said there was a chance thunderstorms could continue into the evening.
