    Another who missed the point.
    'Cat 1' is Indeed No biggie... but try running it up the heaviest populated portion/400+ miles of I-95.
    Lotsa damage at 85 mph.

    Hopefully it will Weaken to 40-50 mph and leave even more minimal damage.
    Not the Forecast now however.

    But of course Not "the end of days" (I said Not "Katrina").. yet another Disingenuous AdamT reply.

    should that instead be SSE?

    Another 'Alarmist' I guess. 11 hours ago.

    As Hurricane Irene nears, Gov. Christie declares a State of Emergency to mobilize National Guard
    As Hurricane Irene nears, Gov. Christie declares a State of Emergency to mobilize National Guard | NJ.com

    EWING — Gov. Chris Christie declared a State of Emergency today and called on the state's shore residents and visitors to Evacuate in the next 24 hours in preparation of Hurricane Irene.

    Christie said he was still weighing whether to order a mandatory evacuation of the shore areas. For now, he said people on a barrier island and any other beach community from Sandy Hook to Cape May should begin preparing now to leave.

    "We are Not overreacting, we need to be ready for this," Christie said.

    He said that based on the state's tracking, the eye of the hurricane, or the most violent part of the storm, could make landfall over Cape May or Atlantic County some time Saturday. The storm surges, coupled with unusually high tides, could cause Extensive flooding across the state, where the ground is already saturated, as well as damage to the coastline, he said.

    Christie warned residents that the storm is Not to be taken lightly.
    "I've lived here my whole life and I understand the cry wolf syndrome. ... This is Not one of those circumstances," Christie said.

    The governor said he would lead by example by packing up his family, which is currently vacationing at Island Beach State Park.
    "I'm on a barrier island with my wife and four kids, and I will Not be there tonight," he said.
    [..........]
    The Displacement from and abandonment of all the shore communities from NC, to AC-NJ, to Hamptons, Cap Cod, etc, is already a Multi-billion dollar hit.

    Christie is doing the right thing but it's really too early to get super excited. A week is a looong time and the track will invariably change. I blieve the average error 4-5 days out is around 250 miles.

    In fact, at about 5-6 days they had Irene running head-on into Miami. It ended up missing us by about ... 200 miles.

    Except there is No "4-5 days" or "5-6 days" here.
    The Hurricane is app 54 (?) hours from Atlantic City. 60 hrs/2 days from NYC.

    another AdamT beauty.

    Oops, my bad. Can't say I've been giving it a lot of attention after it passed us by. But it's actually about three days from your area, and presumably you HAVE been paying attention.

    The models to pay the most attention to GFDL, UKMT, and NGPS. Of the three NGFDL has been the most accurate in recent years. It has the storm running up the Chesapeake Bay and basically missing the NY/NJ coast.
