If you think it's going to be bad for you, try living here in S. New England then!

I wouldn't want to be outside for sure but this is being blown way out of proportion by the media as usual.

As a Bruins fan, I hope you disappear forever! But in all seriousness be safe. This thing can cause serious flooding.

The reasons why it's everywhere in the media are:
1. It's path will affect millions of people living on the east coast and affecting major cities like Philadelphia and New York

2. It's coming at us so the Quebec media is also talking about it (if you live in Southern Quebec)

3. It's a freaking hurricane! Hurricane force winds can cause damages to properties and broken trees and the rapid accumulation of rain can cause overflowing and major flooding. It's a life-threatening situation. Even in Southern Quebec we'll have to deal with some flooding because of the rain.

You might think I'm overreacting but this kind of stuff can't be "underrated".

Anyone knows how strong it will hit here in Quebec, especially in Quebec City ? I need to take the bus to go to college, and I have to walk like 15 minutes to get to the bus stop. ;_;

Isn't the pace of the hurricane supposed to pick up pace though as it gets into cooler waters?

I rent a house on the waterfront in Norfolk. I decided to evacuate and come to Chapel Hill for the weekend with my family. At the time I decided to book the hotel room, it looked like a cat 3, and tight on Norfolk. Not looking forward to the return home; I expect flooding everywhere in my neighborhood, although the house I rent has a ground floor more than 6 feet above ground. Could have been a lot worse, I think, but the fact that its path includes a lot of large cities is cause to give it special attention. On the flip side, it might Obama improve his rating just in time for 2012.

There's some wind here in Montreal, but no rain. Where's the rain? I want to see the rain.

Now, it's a big 'meh'...media hype a lot for NYC. It hit hard in NC and in Virginia. But for NYC, it's been a big tv show, nothing much. I know the city, and unless they get some sudden water surges, Battery Park wasn't hit that hard after all. In some cases, the reporters looked ridiculous in trying to find some water puddles...

The reason the media "blew this out of proportion" (and there is no doubt of this btw they really did) is because government officials use media to send out warnings and prepare people. They are basically trying to protect their own *****. But as of 48hrs ago it was pretty clear Irene was weakening and that most of the hooplah was preventative.

Can't really blame them but as far as hurricanes go this was a baby. If a cat 3-4-5 storm went up the East cost following that same south to north trajectory it would've been an entirely different story.

Yeah, it's starting to be strong in Quebec City... And would be nice if they could close. I mean, I live in Beauport and have to go at CÉGEP de Ste-Foy... By bus. Gonna be a nightmare with the traffic on Robert-Bourassa and Felix-Leclerc. You know what I'm talking about. ;_;

A category 3-4-5 up here is not realistic, doesn't change the fact that there was a lot of damage done, and something like 10 people have died because of it.

We got really no rain (maybe an inch or two), we recieved pretty much 100% wind and with high tide coming at 8P.M., another 3-6 feet of storm surge is expected.





Those were taken in Miscqamicut, a beach village of Westerly.

A breeze in Florida is a hurricane here. We never get this kind of weather. People are not prepared for it. It's not that bad, and yes, it was blown out of proportions--for safety reasons, as you mentioned. But it's only normal.
