                               Texans flee enormous Rita
                                Category 5 storm is third most intense ever

MIAMI, Florida (CNN) -- While more than 1 million people were hurrying to get out of the way of
Hurricane Rita, the Category 5 hurricane was growing more and more turbulent, becoming the
third most intense storm in history.

Officials said the barometric pressure near the eye of the storm was 897 millibars, a lower reading
than Hurricane Katrina, which slammed into the Gulf Coast August 29. Only Hurricane Gilbert in 1988
(888 mb), which struck Jamaica and the Yucatan area, and the Labor Day hurricane of 1935 (892 mb),
which hit the Florida Keys, had lower pressures. Max Mayfield, director of the hurricane center, said
Rita could be even more damaging than Katrina. "This is a very, very dangerous hurricane," he said.
At 11 p.m. Rita had reached a maximum speed of 175 mph, according to the National Hurricane
Center in Miami. The storm's center was about 570 miles away from Galveston, Texas, and the storm
was moving west. In Galveston several thousand of the city's 58,000 residents were rushed to inland
shelters. "I'm prepared to be gone two weeks or more," said Julia Marshall, who moved to Galveston
from New Orleans with her five children earlier this year. Ernie Allen, president of the National Center
for Missing and Exploited Children, said one of the lessons learned from Katrina was that families
need to take some pictures with them. He also advised parents to make "a little simple ID for your
child"    that    they    can    keep    with     them     in   case     they    become       separated.
Galveston, smashed in 1900 by the deadliest hurricane in U.S. history, is in the center of the storm's
path. President Bush declared states of emergency in Texas and Louisiana.
