Hurricane Irene and the Eastern Seaboard of the USA

Almost six years to the date of Hurricane Katrina's landfall this storm takes aim at another "New" city.. This time New York looks to be the final landfall sometime on Sunday in the PM hours.

All I can say is do not take these things lightly, you guys in the impact zone (pretty much the whole East coast) have had AMPLE time to prepare for this storm (It has had it's current track for a couple of days now).. Be lucky that it did not suddenly swing it's track in the span of 8 hours (Friday night Aug 26th Katrina was scheduled to make landfall on the Miss/Alabama boarder.. We watched them reassure us that we would not be hit directly on the local news) and by 5am Sat the 27th the path had adjusted and put us in the bullseye.

If they say evacuate, for the safety of your families please do.
Please everyone be safe and smart.

Thanks for the support CB. It's pretty windy here at the moment, no rain yet. Hopefully for us this is all we're going to get. ;)

Thanks for the heads up!

I live in RI, right along one of the main rivers that feeds into the ocean. I was just reading that the storm will hit during a very large high tide and that they're expecting tide surges from 6 to 12 feet. That's crazy in my book, especially when you've surfed 4 to 6 foot waves during a high tide.

The state has already declared a state of emergency just to get everyone prepared, no matter the outcome.

Please, fellow fans of the east coast, be prepared and be careful. Don't be foolish and think you can go out and have fun in these storms...

I just hope the storms die down before they hit us. I rather doubt it though.

We can sometimes catch the nasty tail ends of hurricanes up here in Nova Scotia, forecast looks clear for now though.

How wide is this one?

And are they still expecting it to be Cat 4 or is it going to be higher?

ah well that's better. Two Cat 5's for me is enough, even a Cat 4 would do a bit of damage. I'm guessing there's a big chance of damage caused by tidal surge hence the mass evacuations?

Is it true that it's only a category 1 now? Either way, the news guy just said that it would pass over night where I am. I guess that's good.

I live in RI too. There's a little brook right behind my house, which I really hope doesn't overflow.

in RI, lots of trees have been knocked down. Some have actually taken out parts of house roofs. Almost every road to my house has been blocked by fallen trees.

I turn on the Today show and hear that they are reporting about people in NY and a couple other states are complaining that they did not have to evacuate, saying that the government "dropped the ball" because the storm turned out to be not as bad as predicted.
Consider yourselves lucky.. Look at poor Vermont and the flooding they are getting now (same kind of flooding that caused levee ruptures down here after Katrina).. Now those people I feel sorry for.

As for those bitching that they had to leave, oh please.. If some of these people knew how many times we in the gulf states evacuated for a storm that did not even hit in our area (changed course at the last minute, dropped in intensification suddenly overnight, etc..) your heads would spin.

Next time stay at home and risk "if" it is as bad as they think it "could" be. Take that chance with your life.

We almost did not evacuate for Katrina and if we did not we would have been stranded in the house (two adults, one 12 year old and one 8 month old) for at least a week with no electricity, 98+ degree temps and no vehicles to escape (our vehicles were flooded and destroyed)..

So word to the wise, if your government asks you to evacuate for YOUR safety, don't **** like a little girl.. Just do it because you do not know what could happen.

They say that my home state of Vermont got some of the worst flooding. The town of Lincoln just 8 miles from where I live was cut off from the outside world because of flooded or crumbled roads. In the town of Brandon 25 miles south of me had their downtown road destroyed by a flooded river, the Brandon House of Pizza was picked up and moved 20 feet down the street. The town of East Middlebury where I grew up and where many of my coworkers and friends still live was at one point evacuated because of the flooding.

On Sunday I went up Route 116 to get home from work like I always do, some of that road runs near the New Haven river. There is a house on that road less than 20 feet from the river, the property it's on seems to flood at least once every year either from the spring thaw or heavy rain storms. When I passed by it the water was over a feet high on the house, and only a couple of feet from the road (the road was closed 20 minutes after I drove by).

Yesterday at work none of our deliveries arrived, they were stuck in Rutland 32 miles south of us no way to make it to all the schedules stores. Our monthly inventory yesterday was canceled. For weeks we've been preparing for a visit from the company president on Wednesday, that's also been canceled. Our deli manager has no way of leaving his home in Richmond.

I was lucky, me, my family and friends are all safe. The worst we got was my neighbor's basketball hoop falling down. However, we do have to boil our water for 5 minutes before we can drink or cook with it.
