Hurricane Irene a serious threat to USHurricane Irene, a category one storm with maximum winds of 80 mph, continues to intensify as it moves west-northwestward at 13 mph. Currently located 105 miles west-northwest of San Juan, Puerto Rico, hurricane warnings are in effect for the southeast Bahamas, Turks and Caicos islands, and north coast of the Dominican Republic. A hurricane watch is posted for the north coast of Haiti and the central Bahamas.
Current model track guidance is nearly unanimous in steering Irene towards the southeast U.S. coast by Friday or Saturday, with landfall occurring somewhere between central South Carolina and southern North Carolina. However, track errors at this range can be as large as 200 to 250 miles so landfall could occur considerably further south or north of that area or the storm could even take enough of a right turn to go out to sea.
