Well, she's on track to pound North Carolina and make her way north.
She won't be missing much of the east coast on her way.
In places like Brooklyn, NY:
"They're expecting - based on the way Irene is tracking right now - they're expecting upwards of 30 foot storm surges - which would be catastrophic."
That was Fox News Radio's Jeff Monosso speaking with Charlie and Charity at WOAI in San Antonio.
So are New Yorkers gearing up to get out?
"At some point if it gets bad enough - all mass transit - we're talking subways, buses and trains... they're gonna be shut down. I mean - subways in this city shut down after a major thunder storm... you can imagine 30 foot storm surges - it's going to wipe out the subway system. So 8-9 million people trying to flee for higher ground without mass transit - that's going to be a problem."
Irene is a pretty massive hurricane.
"It's a huge slow moving system, and slow moving's a problem too because it means you have high winds and the flooding for a longer period of time."
That was Dr. J. Bret Bennington - he's an associate professor of geology at Hofstra University speaking with Rob at WGST in Atlanta.
Up and down the coast - people are bracing for the absolute worst that this storm could bring and up and down that same east coast - the Red Cross is there - waiting to come to the aid of the victims of the storms devastation.
"We're looking at a large scale response and we've got to be ready - we have to have all those volunteers ready - all those resources in place because we know people are going to need our help - whether it's because of the hurricane or because of the flooding that all the rain might cause."
That was Kate Meier - Spokesperson from Red Cross from Charlotte, NC; who's currently on standby in the Outer Banks of NC - speaking with Stefan and April at KOA in Denver.
What do you recommend people in the storm's path do, Kate?
"We're just trying to get out that message of - make sure you've got a disaster kit ready - make sure you have an evacuation plan - and make sure you're keeping an eye on the storm."
And what about after the storm?
"We've got hundreds of volunteers - already strategically placed along the coast who will move in and help distribute those items like food, water - we're going to have shelters set up, we'll have some counselors in place to deal with people - because it's a traumatic experience losing your home - and we know that is a very big possibility right now."
Be safe east coasters.
