Update on hurricane Irene

More flee ahead of Irene as track forecast shifts
Evacuations widen in North Carolina, now include N.J., Md.; NYC to decide Friday

I imagine that this will be the news that is uppermost in the minds of Americans at the moment.  Any damage from yet another hurricane will add to all the other things that will never be fixed.


More areas along the East Coast ordered evacuations after the forecast for Hurricane Irene took a turn for the worse on Thursday, with the Category 3 storm now expected to track farther inland and dump up to 15 inches of rain.

That puts more people within the warning "cone" issued by the National Hurricane Center in Miami.

New York City, Long Island, Atlantic City and Virginia Beach were among the areas now near the center of Irene's forecast path, along with even more areas of North Carolina, where Irene is expected to make a first landfall on Saturday near Ocracoke Island.
