This is going to be quite a weekend in terms of making potential weather history.
If Hurricane Irene takes the path that some models suggest, there will be widespread death and destruction from the coast of North Carolina to inland sections of New England.
Very heavy rain, widespread flooding, and impacts from high winds can be expected.
If you live along the I-95 corridor from eastern North Carolina to Maine ... I would urge you to pay extra close attention to the situation.
The hurricane impacts in North Carolina will likely rival those of Fran (1996) and Floyd (1999) ... and in New England ... we are talking conditions as bad, if not worse, than Gloria (1985) and Bob (1991).
Some say this could rival the great hurricane of 1935 that hit New England.
