A voluntary evacuation makes it a challenge to deliver the newspaper.

We will be unable to provide full distribution of the print edition because of the voluntary evacuation, but we're taking extra steps to make the newspaper available to anyone in Victoria and other locations where possible. Basically, if you live in Victoria, you should get your Advocate. Outside of Victoria, delivery will be much more limited.

We also will continue to update 24/7 as Ike makes landfall late Friday or early Saturday. An electronic version of the newspaper will be available online for those unable to receive the print edition. We will provide this e-edition Saturday, too.

The latest forecast calls for us to miss the brunt of the storm. However, I've learned in a short amount of time to never trust hurricane predictions.
