Hurricane Irene formed late yesterday near Puerto Rico. Irene has sustained wind-speeds of 80 MPH with higher gusts. Irene is forecast to brush the northern coast of Hispaniola before making a turn more to the northwest and impacting the Bahamas. Thereafter the models continue to differ in opinion between a landfall from eastern Florida to the North Carolina coastlines. All interests in these areas should be vigilant and prepared!! The eventual track of this storm will affect many areas, as the windfield of Irene is and will continue to be quite large with tropical storm force winds extending 160 miles or so from the center!! Thanks for stopping by!!
