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

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...

I don't know about NJ but here on Long Island some towns are having voluntary evacuations and the news said by tomorrow it could possibly turn into mandatory evacuations and there are some high schools and colleges being set up as shelters. The mayor on TV recently just said that if people refuse to coorperate the worst case is they could die. kinda scary I see some people making this a huge deal and others saying its going to be nothing. so i dont know what to feel !

From your update:
"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.
I think they're serious!edit on 25-8-2011 by Tasty Canadian because: (no reason given)

thanks, ........ it's really hard to decipher the amount of information. I signed up for text alerts months ago and my cell has been going bonkers with alerts and warnings and closings. things seem to change hourly. the latest is a "very strong category 3". currently, this thing called Irene reaches out 300 miles from either side of its eye. that is massive. one thing I don't understand .......... noone is asking us to check on our neighbors etc.. we're new to this area and I know some of the locals but not all. what about the elderly and what about the people with no transportation? you would think someone would ask those of us who have room in our vehichles to do our part. hopefully, someone is paying attention to all this. I don't see much coordination.... just alot of speculation at the moment.
