As far as comparisons...Hazel (54) and Gloria (85) might be better comparisons. The projected track of Irene, however, is much more devastating than either of those storms since the center could possibly be just west of NYC and the surge would be much greater if you were on the right side of the storm. There is a very good youtube video of TWC's (with the late John Hope) coverage of Gloria (which is the best comparison so far). It is 5 parts but worth watching
