Super Hurricane Irene Threatens the U.S. East Coast!

August 25, 2011 – Irene Threatens U.S. East Coast: Hurricane Irene, a large, powerful Category 3 storm, continues to plow through the Bahamas, with the U.S. in its sights. Irene should track toward the U.S. East Coast this weekend. The Extreme threat level ranges from eastern North Carolina to southern New England.

Irene has the potential to be a serious and multi-hazard threat for the major metropolitan areas of the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast. These include Norfolk, D.C., Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York City, Hartford, and Boston. This hurricane has the potential to produce flooding rains, high winds, downed trees (on houses, cars & power lines) and widespread power outages. Significant impacts along the immediate coast include high waves, surge and beach erosion. The severity of the impacts will be determined by Irene’s exact path and intensity, which remain uncertain at this time.

Irene will make its closest approach to North Carolina late Friday night through Saturday.

We are still a couple of days away from Irene’s direct impact along the U.S. East Coast. Critical uncertainties, related to Irene’s exact track and intensity, remain. This Super Hurricane is a significant catastrophic threat to the east coast of the United States!
