OT: Hurricane Irene

Hopefully the mods allow this thread to stay. Hurricane Irene has shifted her focus on to the mid Atlantic and north east states.It's no longer a threat to Florida.

Latest guidance is converging into a landfall right over LI just east of JFK while still a hurricane sustaining 74mph winds. Still is 5 days out but there is great concern if this were to come to fruition. If todays runs came to reality this would be a disaster for the 5 boros and all of LI.

Couple the amount of rain we have gotten of late and how the ground is saturated..we should anticipate record flooding w/ plenty of downed trees.

Just a heads up..something to follow/keep an eye on for the weekend.

Latest track from the NHC :
