Hurricane Irene has become something else;



It's not every day you see a hurricane forecast cone pointed into the Northeast. In fact, the concern among meteorologists is high. National Hurricane Center Director Bill Read: "We are very concerned with what's going to happen in New England. The benchmark is the 1938 hurricane. I am very concerned with what will happen there." The potential is real for the strongest hurricane hit on the Northeast in at least a couple decades this weekend!

Threat of Irene exposes New York's vulnerability

"If Irene hits Long Island or southeast Massachusetts, the storm has the potential to be a $10 billion disaster," Weather Underground's Jeff Masters said in a blog post Wednesday.

$100 BILLION DISASTER

In fact, ask any scientist who models catastrophes for a living what it would take to create a $100 billion natural disaster, and their list will almost always include a major hurricane (Category 3 or higher) hitting New York City.

This is very bullish... it will destroy stuff, so you can create new jobs to rebuild it... This is very good for the economy... (just ask Krugman)

Been watching Irene's path but also found this earlier regarding a possible Cyclone off the West Coast of Ireland..

I'm no weather expert but that thing looks like it could gain some momentum in the coming days...

LOCATION...24.6N 76.2W
ABOUT 80 MI...130 KM ESE OF NASSAU

MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE...950 MB...28.05 INCHES

Seems to me the pressure is still going down but the speed of winds is going down too... hopefully it weakens... but this is not what people are predicting... at 950MB, it's only 6 MB away from Category 4 territory...

And more fun :

Yay?

So now they are thinking about EVACUATING NEW YORK... yep that's right...

Hurricane Irene May Require NYC Evacuations, Bloomberg Says

New York officials preparing for Hurricane Irene will decide tomorrow whether to call for the evacuation of low-lying areas in downtown Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said.

The decision would be based on the strength, path and speed of the storm, Bloomberg told reporters today at a news conference in a flood-prone section of Queens. The city would offer “an enormous shelter system” for those without a place to stay on higher ground, he said.

“We don’t have enough information yet to make that call,”

NJ officially under state of emergency.

First, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie signed a state of emergency order and urged people at the Jersey Shore to leave voluntarily by mid-day tomorrow as Hurricane Irene approaches the Northeast.


KD :

During Ivan it sounded like our house was being shelled for about two hours - on my bedroom wall!

It wasn't until after the storm that I figured out what it was - it was pinecones being driven at 120+ mph.

Pine cones.

Yeah.

Here is what is possible for New York City if Irene hits them.

Doesn't look good.


Only On The Web: Dr. Nicholas K. Coch explains to Michelle Miller what could happen if a hurricane hit New York City, and according to the professor, history says that it's definitely possible. Read more: www.cbsnews.com...

I'm in the NYC potential evac zone and I don't know what scares me more -- the chaos of the storm or the chaos of an evacuation.

Think I'll just zip up my life vest.

Hi everyone,
I am in Hampton VA at 37.06N 76.32W.
I am at the boarder between VA and NC. Norfolk is 4 miles from my house just to the south. Just to give you an idea of where I will be during this storm. Hatteras is just to the south but as you can see from the coastal maps they keep showing, it juts out about 60 miles from the coast, making it about an hours drive from where I live.
The projected path puts me just within the "extreme effects" area shown on The Weather Channel, on its western edge so I expect to experience only cat 1 conditions. We can do that, we've done it before. Its not fun, at least after three days anyway, to live without electricity, coffee made from water boiled on an outdoor grill does not taste very good. I will miss my Kurig and I will miss my blow dryer but I will be ok. I will post conditions from here for as long as I can on Saturday. Seems the worst will be in the overnight hours. I hate nighttime hurricanes. You can't see whats going on outside you can only listen.

I think you may be right.
Also another big band of thunderstorms over Africa that will bear watching.

Stay safe! I suggest you move west and go to a motel/hotel/camping... if you don't have the money... sleep in your car westward?

Anyway good luck!

NYers can take it, they are a strong people.

Everyone in NY should watch this...
CBS report

Basically saying that NYers don't listen... and that they ``take their chances``... and it will end up costing more injuries and death that it should...

So it should hit NYC dead on with winds of about 80 mph? Not a big deal then... Hopefully. But of course, those winds will be accompanied by water surge... and this could cause some damage...

Still anyone in NYC, be safe, be prepared.

Here is what the are saying about it.But there will be an update at 5pm est.


Heed the Warnings, Irene a Rare but Dangerous Hurricane



- Irene is a hurricane that poses an extraordinary threat and is one that no one has yet experienced in North Carolina to the mid-Atlantic to the Northeast and New England. - We can now narrow the projected path corridor. Confidence is growing that locations from eastern North Carolina and the eastern Mid-Atlantic states to Long Island to southern New England are all in the potential path of Hurricane Irene. - It is becoming clear that Irene's future track will NOT be a Hurricane Earl (2010) scenario where a hurricane barely brushes the Outer Banks of North Carolina then stays well offshore. - History tells us that no category 4 hurricane has made landfall north of the South Carolina/North Carolina border. That said, some computer guidance indicates a category 4 landfall over eastern North Carolina and this solution can NOT be ruled out. - There is historical precedence for a hurricane impacting the major metropolitan areas of the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast but these hurricanes are rare. - However, with a population explosion along coastal areas of the Northeast during the past several decades, there is little to no precedence for a hurricane of this potential magnitude making landfall over highly populated metropolitan areas such as New York City. - Regardless of track and intensity, confidence is growing that Hurricane Irene will cause extensive tree and power line damage. Electricity infrastructure will be greatly compromised for millions if not tens of millions of Americans. - Recent heavy rains over parts of the Northeast, especially New Jersey, have made tree root systems highly vulnerable. Flooding rains combined with high winds will add to tree destruction. - Extent of water level rise (surge) for local bays, inlets and sounds is dependent on the local geography however suffice to say new high water marks could be set. - Severity of Irene's impacts are dependent on the final track. - Please begin to think about and act on your hurricane preparations. Now is the time.

A category 4 hitting NYC would be very scary and would probably be devastating... people in NYC don't seem to prepare or but out at all.

Breaking : NY state under state of emergency.
