Today's update discusses Hurricane Irene which is a Category 3 on the Saffir Simpson Scale. Irene is currently bashing the northern Bahamas with heavy rain and fierce winds. Irene has made the turn more to the north-northwest over the last several hours. She should continue in a northerly direction while continuing to strengthen as she makes her approach to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Thereafter she is forecasted to make landfall once again in the New England states as a Category 2 hurricane. Irene could be an historic hurricane bringing possibly billions of dollars of damage to the eastern seaboard. All interests in these affected areas should closely monitor statements from the National Hurricane Center as well as local authorities should evacuations in your area become necessary!! Remember property can be replaced LIVES cannot!!!
