She's Mighty Big Job

Irene looks to be about the size Ike was. So maybe I'm not too sorry she didn't heed my pleas and come into the Gulf. All we got out of it was an hour or two of morning rain yesterday. Better than nothing, and better than devastation.

Hunker down East Coast.

Depending numerous factors, it could take New York City “weeks or months” to return to normal if the densely-populated city suffers a direct hit from Hurricane Irene. Areas of the city are only a few feet above sea level, making it particularly vulnerable to flooding.

The hurricane is expected to hit North Carolina on Saturday.

  Raw Story

So why is this post all about what would happen to New York City if it took a direct hit? Yes, I know, Irene could change course just a little and smack NYC in the face. But let’s wait to get all end-of-days on the Big Apple until that becomes the likelihood. North Carolina might like some attention.

....but hey, do what you will anyway.
