Hurricane Irene

Is this thing coming right at us?

Either way it should be interesting to see an hurricane land so close to us so I thought a thread would be nice to discuss it for extreme weather fans.

Still , a Tropical Storm ( so named storm ) coming all the way to Montreal is pretty rare , almost looking forward to it.

Meh. If we're gonna get a ton of rain and wind might as well get the real thing like a cat 1. Nothing out of the ordinary weather wise happens here.

I'm not looking forward to it.

I love rain and all, but the draining system in my building is pathetic. The last time we got heavy showers, my toilet clogged up and my appartment was flooded from the bathroom to the kitchen. Nasty stuff.

And you're complaining?? The lack of natural disasters is what makes Montreal weather so great - and, yes, better than places like Miami or San Francisco. I'll take some cold weather any day if it comes with the peace of mind of never having to deal with hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, tsunamis or volcanoes.

How about drought? or severe drought?

Have you seen any recent pictures of Texas river beds?

They are a pretty ominous sign of what's to come in the coming decades for the millions living there. No joke.

True, I forgot about drought. And I thank my lucky stars to be living in what for now remains the cold Great White North.

Extra-tropical storm since we're not in the tropics . Either way, the Eastern Townships and Beauce are going to get pounded with torrential rain and winds. For Montreal it will be mostly winds but with some rain too. Ottawa/Gatineau may get lucky. I haven't check the last models though but I don't think the storm track has changed much.

EDIT: OK, this is getting worse. The american models has it going further west (heavy precip over Montreal/Monteregie) with the eye passing along Sherbrooke and the Maine border. The Canadian Regional model has the eye passing over Maine with heavy precip over the Eastern Townships. This is bad

Isn't anybody else worried about what a tropical storm could do to the crumbling structures of this city? The bridges, people! hehe

Also... has everybody forgotten about the ice storm we had in the 90's?

You'll be getting up to 45 km/h tomorrow, more than enough IMO.

Yes, sustained 140 km/h winds are lousy. Because hurricanes are nothing to fear of.
