Hurricane Irene; beating on the Bahamas.
"She is - definitely a very powerful hurricane altogether with 115mph winds."
That was Meteorologist Michael Schlacter - speaking with the guys at 95-3MNC Michaianas News Channel.
And -- as Schlacter warns:
"Category 2 or category 3 hurricanes should never be taken lightly whether people are used to it or not."
Irene continues her path bearing down on the East Coast of the United States.
And as a result, people are being told to get out of her way.
And out of the water.
The NAVY -- ordering warships in Virginia out of her path.
"We heard from FEMA today - the Federal Emergency Management Agency - saying it's not just the East Coast - it's well inland that you have to worry about - heavy rains and flooding - storm surges are going to cause some big issues not only from the Carolinas but up into DC, Baltimore, New York City."
That was Fox News Radio's Jeff Monosso speaking with Rick Hamada of KHVH in Honolulu, HI.
New Jersey is fully bracing for Irene -- Governor Chris Christie issuing a state of emergency.
