|Irene, as seen from International Space Station (ISS)|
Irene is heading to USA east coast
All the best to those who are playing host to Irene. She is paying visit to the places which are one of the most populated areas in east USA. The worst is that it is expected to travel along the coast, thereby maintaining the power, instead of going into the land and losing power. Lets hope that it will result into a minimal damage.
Edit: found a site which could be helpful for information. http://crisislanding.appspot.com/
NS reports that it's dimension is one third of atlantic coast line.
