Re: Hurricane Irene Landfalls at Cape Lookout, NC

I'm looking at the area of North Carolina that the hurricane is crossing: it is all flat, swampy, with lots of lakes. It won't weaken the storm much.

Storm's appearance is actually improving on IR and WV following landfall. Morehead radar is still showing a badly disrupted eye, and the land interaction won't help it, but there are signs it is trying to fill in the southern and eastern circulation.

Condition report: Winds about 10-15mph here near Annapolis, MD. Still a long way from the storm, the eye being around 270 miles south of me. The closest rain line should start hitting me in the next ten minutes or so.
