It looks like the forecasting for Irene just changed and they now have it hitting the US coast as a major hurricane.

Hopefully it will be moving by fast enough that the beach erosion will be kept to a minimum.

Dang, Hugo relived? I live 110 miles from the coast and Hugo tore down trees in my apartment complex in 88, now that I have a house with some iffy trees, I better check on my insurance plan...quick!

Any of my cat sailing peeps that need to escape the storm and sit it out in a cinder-block built single story home that's been here since the 50's (its seen its share of storms) is more than welcome.

Rum would be great - but just to be safe, bring water too :P

I thought Hugo was '89?

edit; yes it was. Here's a great link to a storm tracking site with all the historical tracks:

Gosh that map does not look good for me. I am at the lower point in NC on the bad side of the storm. Still five days away so a lot can change. Will be good wind at Hatteras Regatta this weekend.

No kidding Dave! I'm hoping that forecast will continue to see it bend more and more right and hopefully eventually safely into the Atlantic with no land fall.

BTW - that image I linked appears to be updating automatically with the latest forecast image.

The WC also showing it taking a path once on shore that would give the Chesapeake region another taste of Isabel (but maybe worse). Happy happy, joy joy...

Im in Bonaire at the moment and the weather is fine, but the storm has sucked all the wind away from here... Not so good for kiting or sailing.

Apparently they've ordered a mandatory evac for Ocracoke Island starting wed. morning, by Sat. , I doubt you'll be able to get to Hatteras unless you live there. It doesn't look to peachy for us David,stay safe. I guess I need to go tune up the Genset and the chainsaw. Damn ethanol.

Watch out for the earthquake! 5.8 NW of Richmond. We had to evacuate our buildings in Baltimore, MD....about 200 miles away.

Hey Todd looks like Irene is headed your way and going a little east of us. Hopefully it will stay off the coast. That ethanol has ruined too many of my small engine parts. Thanks government for another stupid law.
