Something else that they need to keep an eye on is price gouging,people will try to take advantage of this event and raise their prices through the roof.If you see someone doing that ,report them the the authorities because it's illegal,not to mention just plain wrong!

I got the weather channel on right now, and as of 2:35 pacific time the guy on TWC stated "That in a half hour (4:00pm Eastern Time) They are going to bring some areas of the NorthEast into the next catagory up" Potentially catastrophic impacts for several parts of the North east. Im thankful to be in Idaho, This looks like it's going to blow....Literaly

By catagory they mean:
(KEY) Threat Level

Yellow=Low

Orange=Med

Red=High

Pink=Extreme

White=Catastrophic.

Most of the coast is pink now until just a little north of Boston, Areas to turn white soon.

Good luck and God Speed East coast.

It would be a mistake to concentrate too heavily on Irene's Safr Simpson rating at time of impact. True, wind speed is important but it only tells part of the story. The real danger with Irene relates to the storm's size.

Large storms like Irene (example Ike) push a tremendous amount of water a. of them and result in very high storm surges. Florida has deep ocean not far offshore so that helps to limit storm surge but northeastern bays, rivers and some coastal sections are far more shallow so the water piles up on the land. The water has to go somewhere.

The large size also causes hurricand force and tropical storm force winds to extend over greater areas and to last for a far longer time. This combines to multiply their destructive potential.

Take a look at Irene's size. 7.mshcdn.com...

Be sure to have supplies akin to sitting out a 2 week long power outage due to an ice storm. You can fill your washing machine and use water heater water for toilet flushing. Freeze potable water that will help keep your freezer cold for longer and you can drink as it melts. I freeze my candles too because they last longer then Secure anything in the yard that could be blown around.

It is far better to be over prepared than under prepared.

Hurricane Ike affected us here in Kentucky with 70 mph winds and alot of damage.We lost power for 2 weeks.
And to think I moved here to escape hurricanes from coastal South Carolina!

There has never been a mandatory evacuation there before.
What makes now any different before except power and control.

Good Lord woman! Have you really woken up! Sorry, but Irene is not .ing our way, neither is AL10 in mid Atlantic.

I am surprised nobody is paying any attention whatsoever to the Philipines and Taiwan who are presently as I type being hit by Nanmadol which is CATIV...yes that's a 4 folks with gusts of over 150mph. Manila is getting wrecked as we speak.

So, if the hurricane erodes the entire shoreline of jersey, can they then cancel forever "Jersey Shores"?

This may be a gift from god...

Surely you have sandbagged your house up by now, right? omg, get to it!!!

HURRICANE IRENE ADVISORY NUMBER 26
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL AL092011
500 PM EDT FRI AUG 26 2011

...LARGE HURRICANE IRENE HEADING TOWARD THE EAST COAST OF THE UNITED
STATES...HURRICANE WARNING EXTENDED NORTHWARD INTO SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND

A HURRICANE WARNING HAS BEEN ISSUED FROM NORTH OF SANDY HOOK TO
SAGAMORE BEACH MASSACHUSETTS...INCLUDING NEW YORK CITY...LONG
ISLAND...LONG ISLAND SOUND...COASTAL CONNECTICUT AND RHODE ISLAND...
BLOCK ISLAND...MARTHAS VINEYARD AND NANTUCKET.

MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS ARE NEAR 100 MPH...160 KM/H...WITH HIGHER
GUSTS. IRENE IS A CATEGORY TWO HURRICANE ON THE SAFFIR-SIMPSON
HURRICANE WIND SCALE. LITTLE CHANGE IN STRENGTH IS FORECAST BEFORE
IRENE REACHES THE COAST OF NORTH CAROLINA. SOME WEAKENING IS
EXPECTED AFTER THAT...BUT IRENE IS EXPECTED TO REMAIN A HURRICANE

IRENE IS A LARGE TROPICAL CYCLONE. HURRICANE FORCE WINDS EXTEND OUTWARD UP TO 90 MILES...150 KM...FROM THE CENTER...AND TROPICAL STORM FORCE WINDS EXTEND OUTWARD UP TO 290 MILES...STORM SURGE...AN EXTREMELY DANGEROUS STORM SURGE WILL RAISE WATER LEVELS BY AS MUCH AS 6 TO 11 FEET ABOVE GROUND LEVEL IN THE HURRICANE WARNING AREA IN NORTH CAROLINA...INCLUDING THE ALBEMARLE AND PAMLICO SOUNDS

STORM SURGE WILL RAISE WATER LEVELS BY AS MUCH AS 4 TO 8 FEET ABOVE GROUND LEVEL WITHIN THE HURRICANE WARNING AREA THE SURGE WILL BE ACCOMPANIED BY LARGE...DESTRUCTIVE...AND LIFE-THREATENING WAVES. STORM SURGE
VALUES ARE VERY LOCATION-SPECIFIC...AND USERS ARE URGED TO CONSULT
PRODUCTS ISSUED BY THEIR LOCAL NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE OFFICES.

www.nhc.noaa.gov...

So, a little bit of "petering" is NOT going to effect the overall impact Irene will have. Always follow the advice of your local NWS office. In Texas, stubborn folks who insisted on riding out Rita were instructed to write the contact info for their next of kin on their amrms in Sharpie

If you are in an area where storm surge is a consideration, even if you have ridden out storms in the past, please move to higher ground.

Not being funny..but if there's a large tree right next to your home...get a chainsaw and bring it down in a controlled manner before the storm brings it down on your home...with you inside it.

At the least, if things don't get as bad as they reckon, you'll have firewood for the winter.

I'm sure it wasn't deliberate..when folk are tense or worried, they tend to bark a bit.

Don't take it personally, the hype is freaking some people out a bit that's all.

Forget that, just noticed the bloke having a pop is from the UK, so doubt he's that worried.

Might have friends or relatives there i suppose...or he's just a snappy Brit, like me sometimes!!

Hang-on, what about people who have prepared and bugged in?
Do they have to leave all their sht behind as well?!
Give them the choice dammit!

Those who choose to ignore the mandatory evacuation order have been asked to place an ID card in their left shoe so they may be identified if necessary.


Why on Earth would they say that? For a category two hurricane? This is more than they said to the poor people of New Orleans

OK!! Calm down abit.Yes it's a serious storm,It doesn't matter how much you yell at people to leave,if they are going to stay,they are going to stay.
We will just be throwing their bodies in the back of a dump truck later.
I was just stating that the storms has weakened.
People are still in danger in the affected areas.
