Irene will now move northward near the Mid-Atlantic coast Saturday night into early Sunday. Heavy, flooding rains and strong, damaging winds are currently spreading northward well ahead of Hurricane Irene's circulation center. In addition to the wind

We did pretty good here at our farm in New Jersey.
It's still raining so I haven't been able to get outside and check for damage.

Iím sorry to learn people have died, but glad it isnít worse then it has been. Iíll give you odds, any you choose, just like New Orleans, the Disaster Capitalists are licking their chops calculating the profits they will reap and the holdings they will soon control up and down the East Coast following Irene. They are no doubt disappointed it wasnít more destructive.

We can just hope for the best for our American friends. We are fortunate not to get hurricanes very often here in the UK.

These are the things our Founding Fathers created our government for. This is also a major part of MSM facilities license agreement, to keep the public informed in events like this. Both Failed miserably at this, in NYS at least. Today, i tried to drive to Albany, NY from the Utica, NY area. I got within 25 miles of my destination before i was told there are No open routes into Albany from west of Fonda. Before that, i was detoured several times by 'road closed' signs, no state workers, no police, no emergency crews, just signs. Central NYS is total chaos. The tiny village of Canajoharie had traffic jams lasting half an hour and more, because people did not know what was going on. Nothing from the local media outlets, (tv, radio, etc.). On some roads, traffic was allowed to drive up to 15 miles before being turned back around by a 'road closed' sign. I drove over 150 miles in circles for a 50 mile trip. People were very angry, and with just cause. The problem turned out to be concern over the aging bridge structures in the area. But, this concern should have been shared with the public, so we could make other arrangements, instead of creating anger and chaos on the highways! The Cuomo administration should be indicted for not doing their duties, and every local broadcasting station should have their licenses revoked!

Thank you Agnes for this post.
We got very lucky. Lots of rain but avoided any flooding in our area. Huge trees falling all over took our power for only 27 hours. This was nothing compared to the hell other communities went through.

Yes I know. My neighbor lost a big tree, the neighborhood lost alot of big trees, and I'm still waiting on a package I'm expecting that is stuck with UPS in Secaucus NJ due to "natural disaster." The disaster's name is Irene.

My daughter's father lives in W. Ma and lost his front porch, the basement was flooded, and he now has oil in the basement. no flood insurance since they were not in a flood zone although there is a river across the street that hasn't flooded in 200 years. The quilt shop down the street was seen floating down the river. In Boston we got wind and rain.
There was a show with Bill McKibben on NPR the next day talking about how the meteorologists talk about the storm for hours but never seem to touch on the subject of climate change and its role in all these storms. I only heard the last 15 minutes but it was an interesting show and so true.
