Wow - 3/4 of a million people? That should go smoothly.


I'm surprised to hear it is mandatory already. You'd think they'd start with a recommendation before they go full throttle. Not reassuring, to be sure.

Cape May County orders barrier island to evacuate Thursday, mainland residents will leave Friday


CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE - Hurricane Irene is expected to barrel directly into Cape May County this weekend as a Category 2 storm packing sustained winds of 75 mph, as much as 16 inches of rain and a record high tide of 14 feet, county officials said.

At a press conference Thursday, county officials ordered a mandatory evacuation of Cape May County's barrier islands on Thursday and a mandatory evacuation of the mainland on Friday. The order covered all 16 municipalities, including the estimated 1 million residents, visitors and workers on this coastal peninsula.

Cape May County will take a direct hit from Hurricane Irene and that it could make landfall here. McCall said the decision was made to issue the order because Cape May County is considered the sixth most difficult area to evacuate in the U.S. based on it geography. "This kind of order isn't issued without a great deal of thought and concern. I urge you to move, to get out," said Cape May County Freeholder Gerald Thornton. The last time a mandatory evacuation proclamation was made was in 1985 during Hurricane Gloria.


Ahhhh, you guys are fast, beat me to it.

Found this...


CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE, N.J. - Officials here issued a mandatory evacuation order late Thursday that begins at 8 a.m. Friday morning for all of Cape May County.

It is estimated that as many as 750,000 people will be ordered to leave the county, said Frank McCall, the county's emergency management coordinator.

McCall said it is likely that other shore counties, including Atlantic, Ocean and Monmouth, will issue similar evacuation orders.Evacuation ordered for all of Cape May Co.

Irene is predicted to be a weak category 1 hurricane by the time it gets there. Why is this necessary?

wow...last evacuation in 1985...

This in itself is huge news, now combine this with all the other ridiculous news coming out each day and the prophecy of the Mayan days of destruction start to make sense...

why New Jersey, what about Virginia and the Carolinas, New York. There are a lot of places that should be evacuating first. Maybe HAARP is planning on specifically hitting Jersey hard?
South park was right, jersey is the enemy. (I kid I love NJ)

Storm surge.
More to a hurricane then you think.

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.

Mandatory Evacuation in LBI

Jeez.. I didn't realize the severity of this storm. For those of us inland, I've heard that the most we can worry about is extremely high winds, fallen trees and power lines and power outages.
