They are predicting this thing to be really bad if the forecast stays on it's current track.

Best of luck to anyone impacted by this.

And it looks likely to hit his place in Connecticut too as it moves up the Eastern Seaboard. Brings to mind some very poignant lyrics "Ooh, the storm is threatening my very life today."

Let's hope Keith's not planning to be out in a fishing boat anytime soon...

All good wishes to everyone in Irene's path - hope you and yours stay safe.

Gonna be weaker by landfall and it's way bouncing up the East Coast, which will get the weak side (with exception to NC, which will get both sides of the storm). Weak category 1 for most people on land. By the time Irene gets to NY it should be a force 1 hurricane.

Still something to take very serious.

Irene evacuations, transit shutdown ordered in NYC

(AP) Associated Press — In an unprecedented decision, nearly 300,000 people who live in flood-prone areas of New York City were ordered to evacuate Friday as Hurricane Irene sets its sights on the nation's largest city. New Yorkers, many of them without cars, don't have much time to get out of the way before the city shutters its subways, buses and trains on Saturday.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg ordered an evacuation by 5 p.m. Saturday for low-lying areas that house about 270,000 people. The areas include the Battery Park City complex on the southern end of Manhattan; Coney Island, famed for its boardwalk and amusement park; the beachfront community of the Rockaways and other neighborhoods around the city.

Meanwhile, subways, buses and commuter trains in the city, on Long Island and in the northern suburbs will begin their final runs around noon Saturday, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said.

Metropolitan Transportation Authority officials have said they can't run the transit system once sustained winds reach 39 mph, and they need an eight-hour lead time to shut it down. Officials have entreated residents to take it upon themselves to get out early, but it remained unclear how many would heed the warnings that subways and buses might not be there for them if they waited.

While the evacuation was a first for New Yorkers, "I would think that the vast bulk will comply," Mayor Michael Bloomberg said at a news conference. "Unfortunately, there's a handful who will not comply until it's too late. And at that point in time, you can really get stuck."

"Waiting until the last minute is not a smart thing to do," he added. "This is life-threatening."

Meanwhile, shelters were set to open and other preparations continued as the city faced the likelihood of its first hurricane warning since 1985. A hurricane watch was in effect Friday for New York City and Long Island for Sunday, with storm conditions possible Saturday night.

State Director of Operations Howard Glaser said the noon shutdown should provide "sufficient capacity" to get residents out of vulnerable areas. Cuomo said the decision would keep subways and buses "out of harm's way" so service can return as soon as possible after the storm.

The MTA has never before halted its entire system — which carries about 5 million passengers on an average weekday — in advance of a storm, though the system was seriously hobbled by an August 2007 rainstorm that disabled or delayed every one of the city's subway lines. The last planned shutdown of the entire transit system was during a 2005 strike.

Said MTA Chairman Jay Walder, "We're working forward on a plan that will do two things: It will help effectuate the evacuation ... and it will protect the safety of our customers and protect the safety of our equipment."

Oh, yeah.
The Atlantic hurricane season (including the Gulf of Mexico) is June 1 thru November 30.

We're watching this, glad it ain't coming our way, but hoping for the best along the Atlantic coastline.

Well I hope everyone stays well, and I hope there is a woman named Irene on the
eastern seaboard who gives birth to a boy this weekend and has the good sense to name him Jack!
