 Part of channel(s): Hurricane Irene 2011 (current event)

Over the past week, Hurricane Irene has battered Puerto Rico, the Bahamas, North Carolina, and is now heading for the major metropolitan areas of the Northeast U.S. Storm surge and flooding are the major concerns for coastal cities and towns, as total rainfall from this storm may exceed 15" in some areas. Hurricane warnings and evacuations are in effect from North Carolina to Maine.

From tropical wave on August 19th to Category 3 and back down to Category 1 on August 27th, Hurricane Irene's movements are documented here in an imagery from the NOAA GOES-East satellite.
