Click this link for a live webcam at a marina in Cape Hatteras, NC- a town right on the point of first contact:

Looks like things are calm for the moment, but that soon will probably change if Irene goes where they say it's going. Looks like they have some of those boats tied back pretty good....

....some....

For a list of webcams tracking Irene, see this post:

Thanks goochball!

The classic "calm before the storm?"

The very outer clouds of Irene look like they are just starting to engage near Hatteras in the satellite pics.

Definitely the calm before the storm. When is it supposed to make landfall?

Great link. New one on me.


Y'all check it out if you haven't.

Was just there last week
Hope this one spares Hatteras, which gets beat up quite regularly, a direct hit. Also, that webcam will more than likely go down...all their wires are above ground and connection there is spotty on a sunny day.

Which is why I edited the OP and put a link to goochball's post with a list of cams. As Irene takes them out 1 by 1, go right down the list to the next one.


And Wundermap is great yeah, been using it for over a year...

Hey, check out this Kill Devil Hills webcam... there's two dumbasses currently setting up camera equipment right on the beach next to the boardwalk/pier right now as I'm typing this.

I don't think these two guys are the sharpest knives in the drawer, if you know what I mean.




Edited to update:
Now it looks like about 4 or 5 guys setting up video equip. I think it's a group of university students or something, they don't look like a professional crew because they're all dressed in surfer shorts and t-shirts. Are they actually planning on standing right on the beachfront to videotape the hurricane ?!

Well I don't feel my ability for searching for webcams rising,
Can anyone find or already have any webcam sites
for New Jersey. I have a friend up there and I'm already
trying not to worry but still I can't just sit here and stay silent
till it hits Y.Y

Interesting thread.

I don't know how to embeb a live cam.

But in Maryland there is mandatory evac of the Eastern Shore. The only way to get off the panhandle without driving over the penninsula is the Chesapeake bay bridge, which is now a permenant parking lot.

So if you want to feel better about your day, your not stuck on a 2.5 mile long bridge....

Select the drop down for route 50 at sandy point.

Dr. Jeff Masters' WunderBlog Posted by: JeffMasters, 3:14 PM GMT on August 26, 2011 +14 Satellite data and measurements from the Hurricane Hunters show that Irene is weakening. A 9:21 am EDT center fix by an Air Force Reserve aircraft found that Irene's eyewall had collapsed, and the central pressure had risen to 946 mb from a low of 942 mb this morning.

The highest winds measured at their flight level of 10,000 feet were 125 mph, which would normally support classifying Irene as a Category 3 hurricane with 115 mph winds. However, these winds were not mixing down to the surface in the way we typically see with hurricanes, and the strongest surface winds seen by the aircraft with their SFMR instrument were just 90 mph in the storm's northeast eyewall. Assuming the aircraft missed sampling the strongest winds of the hurricane, it's a good guess that Irene is a mid-strength Category 2 hurricane with 100 mph winds.

Satellite imagery shows a distinctly lopsided appearance to Irene's cloud pattern, with not much heavy thunderstorm activity on the southwest side. This is due to moderate wind shear of 10 - 20 knots due to upper-level winds out of the southwest. This shear is disrupting Irene's circulation and has cut off upper-level outflow along the south side of the hurricane. No eye is visible in satellite loops, but the storm's size is certainly impressive. Long range radar out of Wlimington, North Carolina, shows that the outermost spiral bands from Irene are now beginning to come ashore along the South Carolina/North Carolina border. Winds at buoy 41004 100 miles offshore from Charleston, SC increased to 36 mph as of 10 am, with significant wave heights of 18 feet.

Figure 1. Distribution of Irene's wind field at 9:30 am EDT Friday August 26, 2011, as observed by the Hurricane Hunters and buoys. The right front quadrant of the hurricane had about 90% of the storm's hurricane-force winds (yellow and warmer colors, bounded by the heavy black line between the "50" and "60" knot thin black lines.) Tropical storm-force winds (heavy black like bounding the light blue area) extended out 290 miles from the center of Irene. Image credit: NOAA/AOML/HRD.

Forecast and storm surge potential for Irene With its eyewall collapsed and just 24 more hours over water before landfall, it is unlikely Irene will have time to build a new eyewall and intensify. The storm is too large to weaken quickly, and the best forecast is that Irene will be a Category 2 hurricane at landfall in North Carolina on Saturday, and a rapidly weakening Category 1 hurricane at its second landfall in New England on Sunday. However, since Irene is such a huge storm--tropical storm force winds extend out up to 290 miles from the center--it has set a massive amount of the ocean's surface in motion, which will cause a much larger storm surge than the winds would suggest.


There is lots more to read at the link.

Excellent update, she seems to
be weakening and lets hope
there will be nothing to worry
about as it progresses up the
east coast.

This place is evacuating




Bulletin Number: 8 Date/Time: 8/26/2011 5:19:21 PM Dare County Urges Everyone to Evacuate Immediately The window of opportunity for evacuation is rapidly closing. Dare County Emergency Management strongly warns everyone to take advantage of the remaining hours of daylight and evacuate immediately. Gale force winds will enter our area throughout the evening and by Saturday morning Dare County will experience hurricane force winds with serious potential to cause structural damage, power outages, flooding, and impassable roads throughout all of Dare County. Those who do not evacuate should expect consequences. Be prepared to sustain your household for at least 72 hours. There could also be extreme hazards and a major disruption of all services for a prolonged period of time. During the high winds expected during this storm, emergency personnel will not be able to respond to calls for help. Dare County evacuees are advised to use Highway 64 West through Manns Harbor because roads to the north may be extremely congested due to the evacuation of low-lying areas in Norfolk, Virginia. There are no emergency shelters in Dare County. However, the State of North Carolina has opened 2 shelters for Dare County evacuees –
