Hurricane Irene, Potentially Catastrophic!!!

Good Afternoon,

Hurricane Irene has remained her intensity of 100 MPH winds with higher gusts. She is currently located just north of Hispaniola moving west-northwest at 12 MPH. Irene is forecast to move through the Bahamas becoming a major hurricane, possible a CAT 4 before making landfall near the Outer Banks of North Carolina. A bit of uncertainty still exists withing the model consensus, with some models taking Irene just offshore while others rake the entire eastern seaboard. The latter track would potentially be catastrophic with flooding and wind damage throughout much of the northeast. All interests from eastern Florida, and along the eastern seaboard should closely monitor the progress of this system. Thanks for stopping by!!!
