Hurricane Irene Targets East Coast

Yesterday I mentioned that Hurricane Irene looked like it was targeting Florida and the Georgia Coast. Today, more detailed data narrows the track down some and it looks like the entire East Coast as far north as Long Island, NY might be affected. So all chemical facilities located up through New Jersey along/near the Atlantic coast should go back and read my earlier post.

Actually the latest graphic from NOAA on the track of Hurricane Irene places the Sunday 8:00 pm EDT mark for the potential hurricane location on the west end of Long Island; smack dab in NYC. Could this be the dreaded LI version of Katrina? It’s way too early to tell, but not too early to start preparing.
