    Seems to me this is another example of the media over sensationalizing a weather event. Yes it could be bad for the coast, but honestly these storms happen every few years and rarely is one that much worse than others. If you live by the ocean you get hurricaines. If you live in the midwest you get tornados. I don't think it will be as bad as predicted.

    Please don't risk getting hurt or killed people. Just evacuate or do what you have to so you are safe. I am praying for you as are millions of Americans. This is going to be so big.

    Pray for all these American's.

    More Than 65 Million Americans Are in the Projected Path of Hurricane Irene. Mother Nature is ramping up the storm season in a fury of unprecedented natural events and she's just getting started. Picture this very REAL scenario. A massive storm has just devastated your town, power is out all over the city with no signs of being restored, floodwaters lap at your doorstep, and you and your family are completely cut off from all human contact. If your electric power fails due to summer storms, flash floods, hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes or even the ever-present threat of terrorism, you need an emergency radio that WORKS in a REAL emergency. Hurricane Irene's main thrust was still a day away from North Carolina but heightened waves began hitting the state's Outer Banks early Friday as the storm continued trudging toward the East Coast. Meanwhile, the hurricane warning area was expanded and now covered a large chunk of the East Coast from North Carolina to Sandy Hook, N.J., which is south of New York City. A hurricane watch extended even farther north and included Long Island, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket, Mass.

    Stay safe, be prepaired.
