Does anyone know if this will affect Prince Georges Maryland? if so how much? They don't say much on TWC about our area in regards to storms that or I am not paying attention.


If you are in the red area,then yes you could be impacted.
But ,keep in mind that this is a projected map.Things change as it gets closer.
Also keep in mind ,by drawing a center line down the middle,it could go 50/50 one way or another.
Just keep an eye on the weather channel.
BTW:If you look at the wind speeds,it will be a cat 1 or less by the time it gets to you.
Just prepare yourself.

lol! Yea that's something to worry about when it comes to Pepco lol, unfortunately they are the same company that I use. I am forever loosing power, we lost power when that thunderstorm hit the other day, only for a few hours though. I live on a hill so not so worried about flooding, not exactly on the coast either. I live in Lanham. Sorry to hear of your fish
. But I do know well about intelligent fish, especially ones with a personality, I used to have a fish that let me and only me pet him lol. Hopefully you and yours, including your pets will be safe, as well as everyone else in the path of this hurricane. What I am usually affected by when hurricanes hit for some reason is wind. I read somewhere this storm may not be much in the way of wind but will make up for that in rain. I know when it is more wind then rain though, I'm in trouble, my windows aren't the best and neither is my balcony door.

Thanks for the information, hopefully she will stay that way and not strengthen. Where I live I usually don't get much from a hurricane. As I said it usually just wind and it's often not that bad. Makes for a good time to keep the windows open at night!

Hi Kdog,
You've been the substitute host on the thread. You're great.It's your thread now. Thanks.
Now,
Crap! I will probably have to evacuate for this storm. 37.06N 76.36W
That's my location. They are talking about a cat 4 raking over Hatteras. I am tucked inland from OBX but the size of this storm will put my house in cat 3 conditions.

Floyd was a low cat 3 but quickly died to a weak cat 1 and still caused massive floods in Hampton Roads. Franklyn, a city far inland sustained historic flood levels. Norfolks waterfront was submerged.
Isabael took out trees and powerlines over a three state area. That damage was due to an extremely wet spring and summer. We have had significant rainfall over this summer. I am a gardener and I keep track of water for my plants. When the ground is saturated the wind takes the big trees down in a hurry. Isables effects were mostly due to trees on power lines. ( When will they put these frocking things underground in this area???)
Are you in Hurricane Alley? You sound like you talk from experience.

These storms if you dare to stay get very scary very quickly. What seems like an intense thunderstorm, and I love a good thunderstorm, with really cool winds, gets to be shaking the house winds, and rain coming in sideways. And it will scare anyone into thinking about mortality I am not kidding.
So if you or anyone else is in the path and thinks its cool to experience, I say wait for a cat one , its a kiddy ride but this one is not one to play around with.

Oh and for those in the mood for a prediction,
Since I live in Virginia, I am penciling in Locust, for some time next week.

I use to be in hurricane ally.Charleston,SC to be exact.Out of 46 years on this earth I have spent 30 + years there.
Just be calm,prepared to move when they say to.You still have a day or so till we know exactly where it might go.
Here is an interactive map provided by the weather channel,which when I lived down there,was my light in the storm back in the day.

BTW,I live in Kentucky now,but we still get affected by hurricanes coming up through the gulf of mexico.

I will share a story with you.
Back in ,I think 1999,I lived in Charleston with my wife and 1 year old daughter.
I think it was hurricane Floyd,but heck I have been through so many ,they are all the same.
Anyways,It look like it was going to hit us directly.
The told us to evacuate.
I lived 17 miles from the coast.
So,my wife took our 1 year old daughter and headed northwest to Lexington,SC where my parents live.
I took my cat and dog and valuables in my truck heading that way too.
We took the backroads cause I got wind that the interstates was totally clogged and shut down.
It took us 10 hours to go 90 miles!
And you know what? The storm missed us and we had only 70 mph winds and some rain.
That is when I said enough!
To protect my children,I moved after been born and raised there.
But,when my kids are out of the house,I'm moving back there again.
You know why?
Cause that is my home!

Funny thing is today I watched a show about mega disasters,don't fear,it was just an hypothesis,
about a category 3 hitting New York.

Lanham? Whoa I know Lanham, or at least I used to twenty years ago. Lol, it's hard to describe and still try and maintain some semblance of privacy here. But suffice it to say, if I go back to visit family and visit all my favorite old shopping and eating places, I would not be shocked to run into you!
Though I'm not from Lanham and in fact used to wish I was, since from what I saw of visiting friends in parts of Lanham, the houses are much nicer than the neighborhood I am from.

Sounds like you had a fish a lot like mine. I love them but if I would have known how bad Pepco service is here, as my grid is particularly unreliable, I don't think I would have invested in these tanks like I did. It looks like this storm could bypass us. I sure hope so. I have places to be, things to do!

Yeah, I am just watching now. My house is 100 years old and has weathered these storms before. The current path puts me just at the western edge of the "extreme " area. Probably cat 1 conditions for the Norfolk area because that is also west of the projected path. I may not have to evacuate after all. We're stocking up and ready. I can make miracles pop up out of canned food, I've done it in the past. Looks like an interesting weekend to say the least.
I want to go to Charlston for my 30th this fall. Such a romantic city.

There are those on this site that believe those are some form of disclosure of sorts. Hollywood is getting us prepared kind of thing.
Yes they certainly are sensationalized.
I was born and raised in NY. NYC until I was 11when my parents moved us away from the bad bad city to the green lawns of Long Island. I lived on LI until I was 34. That is when I bought my home here in Hampton. Its funny, I loved LI and have lived on this coast my whole life. I consider Virginia my home. Must be something about that southern coastline life style. Even from here in the city you dont have to go far for rolling dunes and sea birds. The Eastern Shore is still vastly natural terrain. The rest is farming and small towns. The mood is always laid back and mostly about the fish and the cooking of those fish. I love it.

I think you will be fine.I'm more worried about those that are not prepared and have never been through one before,especially New York City.

Here is something else I found on the subject,a more realistic view point.

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...


Yes,I miss my dear city of Charleston.If you go,I can help you with where to go and places to see.

Here is the latest news on the subject.


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.

Is that your dog? We had a Husky, named Nikita. A real family member. He lived to be 15 years old. The vets said that's old for a Husky. Guess he loved us as much as we loved him. If that is your dog we can swap escape and jumping fence stories!

Don't worry I'm sure someone will soon hit on the idea that Irene is behaving strangely and/or does something they haven't seen before and therefore must be controlled by HAARP/Nibiru/Mossad/Reptilians/Gaia..... And then all we'll hear about is Irene. Trust me. This is, after all, a conspiracy forum ....

Actually it's part of Obama's job plan,using HAARP of course to direct Irene to hit wallstreet.
Putting America back to work!

The crawl across my TV says that the National Guard have been deployed to federal warehouse depots in the area. Both North Carolina and Virginia have declared a state of emergency and have asked Pres to declare federal emergency.

A voluntary evacuation is declared for Accomac county on the Eastern Shore of Va. I have lived here for 20 years and they have never issued any evacs except some low lying neighborhoods, never entire counties.
