    The Hurricane Irene Thread

    Bloomberg just ordered an evacuation of seniors from low lying areas of Manhattan.

    I figured that made this monster of a storm worthy of its own thread.

    First the earthquake, now the hurricane.... God must be pissed at East Coast for some reason. What the hell did we do?

    Re: The Hurricane Irene Thread

    This is a very curious storm. Most of them that follow this track head out to sea eventually, but Irene just keeps coming. Very few hit the Carolinas, and even fewer hit New England. The last active hurricane to hit New England was Hurricane Bob in 1991 which was a category 2. There have been a ton of the tropical storms and extra tropical systems but it's been twenty years since a legit hurricane hit.

    It'll be interesting to say the least how it'll be upon it's possible landfall.

    First time I'm ever in the Northeast and this happens. Hopefully it changes course.

    NY1 was showing how authorities in North Carolina were urging people on their Barrier Islands to evacuate and many were like "Why?" I thought Katrina taught people the folly of ignoring storms. This is a huge storm. I hope people come to their senses. As they used to say when I was growing up better safe than sorry.

    NYC MTA is saying that the entire transit system could be shut down late Saturday and may not come back up until late Monday. That would affect Day 1 of the US Open.

    Looks like it's going to go west of me and hit NB instead of NS sometime Monday afternoon.
    Thanks for the medal Johanna!

    They're talking about storm surge in New York Harbor and the Hudson River possibly flooding parts of Manhattan.

    Heard this morning that a shutdown has never happened before. It is the largest transit system in the world. This storm is gonna be epic.
