Hurricane Irene Approaches NC Coast

A satellite image shows hurricane Irene seems to be probing the NC coast - almost as if the storm were searching for something.

Hurricane Irene, now surging to category 2, is approaching the coast of North Carolina. “It’s definitely headed north” a U.S. Weather Service spokesperson said. “It’s really making a bee-line for Atlantic City – almost as if the storm had some purpose or target in mind.”
