Marking Ike's anniversary

By Amy Robach, NBC News anchor

It was one year ago today I was bracing for the 3rd most destructive hurricane to hit the United States, Hurricane Ike. Our NBC News crew hunkered down on Galveston Island, behind a thankfully sturdy seawall. We watched as massive winds and flooding destroyed most of the island community, and impacted Texans across the state. Tonight, we look at the progress made over this past year, and the work that still lies ahead for those who chose to stay and rebuild – but many did not.
