Texas Requests Ky. National Guard for Hurricane Dean Assistance

Hurricane Dean is besieging the Cayman Islands at this hour, after savaging Jamaica on Aug. 19, 2007.

Eight deaths are now blamed on the storm. The National Hurricane Center fears Dean could be a monstrous category five hurricane by the time it crashes into Mexico’s caribbean coast sometime on August 21. That has frightened tourists scrambling for safety.

Kentucky is dispatching two National Guard helicopters along with 18 Guard members to Texas in case Hurricane Dean changes course.

The assistance was requested by Texas Governor Rick Perry.
