Time to start paying attention to the weather - Irene is heading toward Florida
Thinking of heading to Florida this weekend? A hurricane might be there to greet you.
Hurricane Irene appears to be the first of the season to target Florida. The National Hurricane Center is forecasting that the storm will sweep north just off the Atlantic coast of the state, arriving due east of Port Canaveral Friday morning. The forecast "cone" of where the storm could show up includes much of the state, however. Cruise lines already are altering their itineraries.
At this point, Irene's not that strong yet, having just achieved hurricane status. If the NHC's forecast holds, Irene's sustained winds will build to over 110 mph by Thursday, and the storm is predicted to hit South Carolina on Saturday morning.
Florida residents, you know the drill by now. But if you're planning a visit to the state's theme parks between now and the weekend, start paying attention to the weather forecasts.
The most striking feature of the exterior of 'Men In Black: Alien Attack' is the maginficient "Wonderwall" -- a sweeping architectual element that covers the entire front elevation.
Welcome to the Florida summer:
Its now section 2! Lets hope all us Floridians survive.
In the spirit of TH Creative's post, I'm hoping that the more we talk about it... the farther out it stays in the Atlantic.
I live in Wilmington NC... on the map, that is located about directly on the water of the east coast of NC about 3 human hairs up from the NC/SC border... as of a few hours ago, AMS has been saying that it should kick us square in the yarbles Saturday. Not sure if that would rustle FL too badly or not... these storms are always so unpredictable.
The most recent tracking shows it skirting Florida and heading for the Carolinas.
I bought some hurricane supplies yesterday, so don't worry fellow Floridians, as a result the chances are now very high that the hurricane won't hit us (Lord willing)!
