ouch! looks like the eye is passing over oriental.

hope your boat is okay.
Yep, that's the one.

We are on the hard between the creek and the boatyard office. My guess is when she floats off the stands she takes out the office as well. They've had no power and no phones since last night so we watch and wait. Thanks for the good thoughts.

Looks like a tropical storm now. Winds at Cape Hatteras are 71 mph.

If you look at Stormpulse, most of Irene is inland from Hatteras.

Re: Irene Making Landfall - Is 80 Miles Far Enough Away ?

Comms from Oriental is very spotty at the moment. Powehas been out since 10:30 last night and cell towers are probably out of backup power by now. I have a report of boats moored behind the bridge breaking loose and being lost. River Dunes reported 95 mph but no boat damage. Town dock has not updated since 8:28, which was before the eye wall hit. The surge was only 4 inches from the Isabel level at that time. The back side of the eye wall is over the area at the moment, but that should blow the water out. .... Town Dock just updated, surge was 9.5 feet now down to 5.5 ft. Some afternoon thunderstorm. My boat is in River Dunes. Good luck to everyone with boats in the path of this one. Forum rules prevent me from sharing my opinion on the intelligence of someone suggesting minimal preparation for this one.

When it comes to nature, always prepare for the worst and hope for the best.

That was all before Irene hit with her full force. Webcams are from yesterday.
