So if this thing does track over eastern end as a Cat 2, do I board up my windows or no?

I've seen them flex on 60mph-70mph gusts but if we got one upwards of 85-100.. might punch a window..

Flooding is not an issue for me.. Wind is my enemy..

 

Still far away and anything can happen but I know folks like me and TBD and anyone else less then 1/2 mile from oceans edge has to take notice...

 

Renters have been put on notice.. Might have a visitor..

All is well, not doing as much fishing as I would like. :(

 

Same here. We joined Lifetime Fitness in Syosset and we spend a llllllooootttt of time there, but I still get out once in a while. Not fishing very hard and my results show it - just a few bass here and there. I know some of the guys on here are hittin' it hard and getting results but that's not going to fit into my lifestyle in the summer, I'll save that for September.

Skidd has it right. All you can do is have supplies on hand and have someone to instal the protection a phone call away. I'm as ready as one can be. Going to stay put for the show unless their is an evacuation but will have the family on the road back way in advance.

Got an e-mail from Suffolk County:

 

/24/2011 5:47:56 PM EST - The Suffolk County Office of Emergency Management is monitoring Hurricane Irene.

Please review our anticipated questions and answers for Suffolk Residents shown below. These questions and answers are based on National Weather Service Estimates from 2:00 pm today. Please check the Suffolk County Web site for updates: http://suffolkcountyny.gov/

 

 

 

ANTICIPATED QUESTIONS

 

 

 

When and/or where is the storm going to hit Suffolk County ?

 

At this time it is too early to tell precisely where or when the storm will strike Suffolk County . We can expect rain and increasingly strong winds to precede the actual landfall. You should monitor changing weather conditions on your radio, television or the National Weather Service - NOAA website at: http://www.nws.noaa.gov/">http://www.nws.noaa.gov/

 

How bad is it going to be?

 

At this time it is too early to predict the severity of the storm. At a minimum we can expect rain and wind. Please monitor changing conditions on your radio, television or the National Weather Service – NOAA website at http://www.nws.noaa.gov/">http://www.nws.noaa.gov/

 

Should I stay in my home or evacuate?

 

Any orders or recommendations to evacuate will be issued by the County prior to the arrival of the storm. Please monitor your radio and television for announcements.

 

Where should I go?

 

If you are concerned about staying in your present location because of the storm, we recommend that you proceed to higher ground – typically towards the spine of Long Island which is roughly along the LI Expressway corridor.

 

What Shelters are open?

 

At the present time there are no Shelters open to accommodate people leaving their residences. In the event conditions require that Shelters do open, the names and locations will be identified on the Suffolk County Website at: http://www.suffolkcountyny.gov/">http://www.suffolkcountyny.gov/">http://www.suffolkcountyny.gov/">http://www.suffolkcountyny.gov/">http://www.suffolkcountyny.gov/">http://www.suffolkcountyny.gov/">http://www.suffolkcountyny.gov/">http://www.suffolkcountyny.gov/

 

 

 

What can I do to prepare?

 

Instructions to prepare for storms and hurricanes can be found on the Suffolk County Website at http://www.suffolkcountyny.gov/">http://www.suffolkcountyny.gov/">http://www.suffolkcountyny.gov/">http://www.suffolkcountyny.gov/">http://www.suffolkcountyny.gov/">http://www.suffolkcountyny.gov/">http://www.suffolkcountyny.gov/">http://www.suffolkcountyny.gov/ . There are links in this website to additional sources of information from a variety of agencies.

 

 

 

What about my pets?

 

Should conditions dictate, there are Pet Friendly Shelters in the County which may open to accommodate your needs. However space in these shelters is extremely limited so pet owners should make their own plans to care for their pets. Please monitor your radio, television and the Suffolk County Website at http://www.suffolkcountyny.gov/">http://www.suffolkcountyny.gov/">http://www.suffolkcountyny.gov/">http://www.suffolkcountyny.gov/">http://www.suffolkcountyny.gov/">http://www.suffolkcountyny.gov/">http://www.suffolkcountyny.gov/">http://www.suffolkcountyny.gov/ for details.

 

 

 

I have special needs – what do I do?

 

If you feel that a disability may prevent you, or a person under your care, from evacuating to a regular shelter, contact 631-852-4900 and enroll in the J.E.E.P. Special Needs Registry before the storm hits. If you have a true emergency please call 911.

 

 

 

Am I in an area that will be flooded?

 

The Suffolk County Website has an interactive map which shows the storm surge zones for different category hurricanes. This map can be used as a guide to determine if a particular address is located in an area which may flood. The map is at http://www.suffolkcountyny.gov/">http://www.suffolkcountyny.gov/">http://www.suffolkcountyny.gov/">http://www.suffolkcountyny.gov/">http://www.suffolkcountyny.gov/">http://www.suffolkcountyny.gov/">http://www.suffolkcountyny.gov/">http://www.suffolkcountyny.gov/
