Hurricane Irene to Impact the Northeast!!!

Good Afternoon,

Today's update discusses Hurricane Irene which is a CAT 3 hurricane with sustained winds of 115 MPH with higher gusts. Irene is currently pounding the Bahamas with heavy rain and fierce winds. Irene should pass near or just east of the island of Providence which is home to the city of Nassau. Nassau is home to approximately 70% of the total population of the Bahamas. Irene should then take a more northwesterly course possible making landfall in North Carolina near the Outer Banks and Pamlico Sound. Thereafter the models are in disagreement with a track ranging from offshore to a devastating course up the New England coastlines. Thanks for stopping by!!!
