It does seem a US landfall is likely, but it really is too early to be talking about landfall locations. Things should become more clear in the next day or 2.

I agree with the above. I hope and pray all we get is some rainfall out of Irene.

I gotta say though, I always pick the worst weekends to move. The last time I did, was the weekend Tropical storm Fay came through Brevard county in 2008, just 3 days after I got moved in. Monday the 29th is my moving date this time, and gosh, I hope I have electricity during the move! Or at the very least, I hope the traffic lights are working, because the moving date is set in stone!

May everyone on the east coast, as well as their homes, remain safe and dry! Make sure you take those empty juice/soda bottles and fill them up with water in advance! If we do get a storm, tap water will be undrinkable for a few days (think a mixture of sewer and tap water).

I'm not worried about it I'm in SWFL (parallel to Miami but on the west coast) and we kind of become immune to the hype of these. Its already being shown to move off shore, probably to the carolinas more. We might some rain bands from it maybe a little wind. I won't even leave my house unless its a high cat 4. I stayed for wilma which was a Cat 4 and we got the eye of the storm. I think i prepared more living up north for a blizzard than I will for a storm here

I'm afraid Irene is going farther east and will not even bring the much needed rain.

I didn't know Central Florida was so dry-here in Tampa Bay, we're 10 inches over normal. We've had 40+ inches so far this year.
