The first hurricane of the 2011 Atlantic Hurricane Season is slowing pushing northwest ... with an eventual turn to the north and then northeast.
It still looks like the storm is going to graze the eastern seaboard of the United States.
It seems like Irene kind of got lost in today's news coverage after the two big quakes. (one in Colorado and one in Virginia)
Right now, the danger zone is the Bahamas ... where Irene is expected to intensify into a Category 3 or larger hurricane.
