Hurricane Irene News

Well, it's been hot summer weather in the O.C. today, with temperatures in the mid-90s. But Hurricane Irene is bearing down on the East Coast and there's a lot of developments.

At NYT, "City Orders 250,000 People to Evacuate," and "This Storm, Bloomberg Responds Differently." And at LAT, "Airlines cancel nearly 5,000 flights because of Hurricane Irene." But see Dr. Jeff Masters' WunderBlog, "Irene's eyewall collapses; further intensification unlikely."

BONUS: From Nate Silver, "A New York Hurricane Could Be a Multibillion-Dollar Catastrophe" (via Memeorandum).

Hi, Donald! :-)

I like the comments made by a New York dude to a Swedish journalist.

He said "it will be rainy and windy, but who cares?"
