It's comin', folks. Hang on tight! I can't believe we're getting this the same week as a 5.8 earthquake. What are the chances?? http://www.weather.com/ - Acording to this website, Irene will make landfall in North Carolina and continue up the coast through Eastern Virginia as a Category 3 Hurricane. Please stay safe down there, guys! From there it looks like it will hit Maryland, Delaware, Eastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York, and all of New England as a Category 2 Hurricane, before tapering off into a tropical storm. This has the potential to cause way more damage than anything caused by the earthquake. My mom keeps calling me. She wants us to drive to Western PA and wait out the storm to stay safe. I don't know what to do. I don't want to take such extreme precautions like that, only to have the storm go out to sea. It's confusing.
