Hurricane Irene is intensifying this morning with winds now at 110 mph, and is battering the southeastern Bahamas. The national weather service says it will likely becoming a major hurricane later today or Thursday. The current forecast is for Irene to parallel the East Coast into the weekend, slamming the outer banks or just skirting the coast—the verdict is still out on that, but they’re calling for  a ‘significant impact’ in eastern North Carolina sometime Saturday before the storm cruises north, possibly ramming into the Northeast by late Sunday or early Monday as a Category 1 or 2 hurricane.  Residents from Florida to Maine are asked to be on high alert.
