Saturday August 27, 2011 Hurricane Irene hits the East Coast. It hit where I live at a Cat 2 but was coming at us as a Cat 3. There was 4 deaths in North Carolina, due to Irene. Even though there is alot of damage, flooding, and even no power for a few days, the preparation for this hurricane sure did pay off! 10 states on the East Coast got hit by Hurricane Irene. Delaware and Virginia reported that Hurricane Irene turned into a Tornado once it got to them. Swansboro, which is a couple minutes from where I live still has no power, but that's not stopping businesses from going to work! The Bouge Inlet Pier on Emerald Isle collapsed during the storm. Hoping everyone who got hit from this storm is doing well, our thoughts & prayers go out to them!
