Hurricane Tracker

Since yesterday, at work some friends were talking most about Hurricane that would hit our area on Saturday and Sunday (today and tomorrow). I was curious about this news so I searched at and found HURRICANE TRACKER.

According to the news I read: Hurricane Irene battered the North Carolina coast with wind and rain Saturday, wreaking havoc as it began a potentially catastrophic run up the U.S. East Coast. Irene was moving north-northeast along the coast and was expected to remain a hurricane as it hit the mid-Atlantic states on Saturday night and New England on Sunday.

With winds of 85 miles per hour, Irene was a Category 1 hurricane on the five-step Saffir-Simpson intensity scale. Forecasters warned that it remained a large and dangerous storm and that its wind-strength was holding steady at 85 mph.

As of 11 a.m., tropical storm conditions had spread into coastal Va., Md., and Del., demonstrating the unusually large size of the storm.

New York City ordered unprecedented evacuations and transit shutdowns as states from the Carolina to Maine declared emergencies due to Irene, whose nearly 600 mile width guaranteed a stormy weekend for tens of millions of people. (MSN News)

If I checked from HURRICANE TRACKER, it seemed my area would be hit from Saturday evening/night to Sunday morning as the effect of it and it's called the tropical storm. Since in the morning, I have prepared everything. I made sure nothing left at the front porch/house, and cleaned and arranged the garage so my car would have a place to park in, meanwhile the other car is still getting repair since two weeks ago.

While I'm writing this post, the weather outside has been cloudy since I woke up in the morning. I'm waiting for my husband go home from work and I'm not sure I'll come to work this evening or not. If the rain and windy have started before I leave, I think I prefer to call off from work and stay at home.

Below I attached a video, showing the hurricane is hitting North Carolina. (*)
