I wanted to make a thread to track Hurricane Irene as it begins to devastate the eastern seaboard.

It will be high tide when Irene steams through which will push tons of water inland flooding low-lying cities.

As of right now there is a hurricane warning for over 29 million people. Please share your thoughts on this, because this event will be talked about for awhile.

Of course here is a link to The Weather Channel so you can track it.

If you live in the area please give us some updates on the situation and of course be safe.

How is a cat 2 hurricane "historical" in any way? Way to add to the irrational panic the media has created.

Were you born after Hurricane Katrina? Apparently you don't know what storm surge does to cities on the coast line. Not to mention people who aren't prepared for hurricanes in the northeast. Not to mention this hurricane isn't hitting just one major city, it's hitting a sh*t load of major cities both on the coast and inland.

Ah sorry forgot to mention, it's been almost 200 years since a hurricane took this track.

Yes it is.

The media is good at its job

I'm not sure if you heard but Hurricane Irene has been said to lost quite a bit of strength and it will not even be considered a category 1 anymore, it will be a tropical storm.

Or at least once it hits Rhode Island.

No, actually I experienced Katrina as it crossed over Florida. Katrina was a cat 5 hurricane, how on earth can you compare this thing to that???

And, New Orleans is largely below sea level, that is a totally different situation.

The Hurricane is going to hit many major cities, so the media will be able to hype the amount of damage that occurs even if it is spread out. It doesn't have to leave people homeless or flood entire communities, but if there are like more than 10 states that are going to be effected then it some how rivals with category 4s and 5s that hit only Florida and the gulf states

Exactly what I've been wondering... I've lived in NC my whole life, and the coast of NC for a good portion of it... Hurricanes don't scare me.

History as is the most over-hyped storm of the century? Absolutely.

It's a borderline Cat 1 that matches some normal Florida weather patterns now, this whole thing is a big joke.

Wait till it moves into low-lying, major cities. If there is any storm surge, subways and sewers will flood, forcing millions and millions of urban rats to the surface and into taller buildings where folks are holding up.

The potential is crazy. It's the stuff of Hollywood.

Yeah, definitely a tense experience to ride one of these out. The rumbling sound will continue for hours because the wind from this storm alone is as powerful as an F1 tornado, so it is kind of like being in a very minor tornado for hours. Not fun, stay safe man.

I always found my buddy Jack Daniels a very helpful part of my preparedness kit

This storm is carrying A LOT of water and it's hitting at high tide, the winds aren't so much the worry as much as the massive flooding that can potentially happen.. this could be a very devastating event.

Yes, but NC will take the surge. For NY to take a major surge wall it would have to come in from the SE, this is coming from the south so the surge will largely be blocked by the NC coast. And I am sure NY will not even say "thanks."

Are you serious? .. The thread is the flooding, not the storm directly .. the storm carries with it a LOT of water in an already saturated land mass, that water has nowhere to go with as much precipitation that has fallen .. Not only that but it strikes at high tide so it's going to be pushing some serious water on shore.. this storm has seriously dangerous potential, it is a not at all wise to underestimate it that way..

Does it matter who takes the surge? we're talking people .. should we just care less because it's not New York? I hope that isn't the insinuation
