Hurrcane Irene--trucks en route to NC

Relief trucks in Atlanta roll ahead of Hurricane Irene ?| ajc.com

Trucks with supplies and Red Cross personnel are on their way to Ft. Bragg, NC from a FEMA center in Ellenwood, GA.

The article states that much has been learned since Hurricane Katrina.

It sounds like the Outer Banks will possibly take a direct hit. Hopefully evacuation is now in progress. I've always thought of the Outer Banks as rather remote and it would be difficult to get supplies in and repair damages.

It didn't sound good when a reporter described the possible gridlock on the bridges of NYC and NJ.

My friend has evacuated So FL several times and sat for hours in traffic trying to leave.

There is sufficient warning so I hope everyone is making arrangements.

I agree. Be prepared. Locals for the most part probably know what needs to be done, but all those tourists.....

It's been a while since I saw Environment Canada post a hurricane track like this one.

Canada--yes, I would think that they are not often affected.

It sounds like the eye will pass over Oceanside, MD. Then on to NYC with 85mph winds.

The flooding of streets is a major concern. A strong category 1 or a weak 2.

I wonder what the rest of the season will bring?

We sometimes get some of the remnants here in Montreal. Basically just lousy weather, no damage to speak of. This track looks like it's coming closer than usual.

Anyways, I hope everyone down on the eastern seaboard does the right thing and stays safe.

50/50 chance that it stays on track---NYC facing flooding and high winds.

fingers crossed that it goes off track and the effects aren't as severe.

better safe than sorry but I sometimes dislike the media's 'anxiety'. We will soon know and I hope everyone stays safe.
