Damn you Hurricane Irene,
You have ruined yet another sunny and beautiful Miami weekend. I actually had a few interesting things planned and thanks to you , I’ll probably be sitting in my Aunts house in the middle of the Hispanic hub city called Hialeah. I can already imagine it , the next day after the storm people will be in the streets and selling fruits and water to people without electricity. Viva Hialeah.
On a more serious note , As of the latest 5 p.m. weather advisory from the National Hurricane Center - the committee reports that Hurricane Irene is now a category 3 hurricane with wind speeds reaching up to 120 mph. The latest computer models which are tracking the storm and its movements are now predicting and tracking the path as now moving West towards the united States. This is bad news for the Eastern Seaboard. So everyone from Carolinas to New England needs to gear up for possible landfall from this category 3 whirlwind of power.
Irene has already made dramatic landfall in the Southern Bahamas area. It’s expected to leave the Bahamas area , heading West towards the Carolina’s on Frida . Damage reports are already flooding in about the effects this storm is having on the Bahamas population , only proving that its strength is only gaining and developing along its route.
“A church wall blown out on Mayaguana Island, missing boats in the Turks and Caicos, roofing stripped from Crooked Island’s high school and government buildings, downed trees and lost power everywhere.” , states one Miami Herald report which highlights the effect the storm is taking on our neighbours to the East.
If any of our readers are in the storm’s path , our prayers go out to you and the safety of your loved ones .
Please take the time to check out the Hurricane Prepareness Guide on the National hurricane Centers website and get prepared !
