Another victim of Ike -- the Greater Houston Association for Smog Prevention.
GHASP's headquarters took a heavy hit from the storm.
"Unfortunately our office was severely damaged during Hurricane Ike," the group announced."The roof was completely torn off the building, and our office had major water damage."
Until they can get things back together, GHASP is using temporary digs at -- appropriately enough -- the American Lung Association.
