Re: Irene Storm Preps

Well Irene's inner core is collapsing (good news), I would still expect to see this at high end cat 1 at landfall maybe lower end cat 2 but the bigger news will be the possible flooding rains and high winds over large area with many areas up the eastern seaboard seeing tropical storm sustained winds with gusts to hurricane force likely into lower New England. I see maybe some 90-100 mph in gusts possible near landfall but the bigger issue looks to be size and amount of time of damaging winds.
