Hurricane Irene Heads For Southeast U.S. Coast

America lucked out last hurricane season- but it appears we won't be so lucky this year...

Category 1 Hurricane Irene continues to churn the Atlantic waters near Hispanola (Dominican Republic/Haiti) this Tuesday morning.

Weather model forecasts (shown here close to landfall the GFDL and HWRF models) for Irene take her close to the eastern Florida coast and possibly on-shore somewhere near Wilmington NC possibly by Saturday evening.

It would be a good time for residents on the east Florida- Georgia- South and North Carolina coasts to ready themselves for a possible Category 1 to 3 hurricane in the next few days.
