Hurricane Irene 2

This image, taken by NASA yesterday, shows just how big this storm system is. It shows Irene making landfall in North Carolina and covers nearly the entire eastern seaboard. While posting this, I just heard there have already been four reported fatalities and there are over 300,000 homes currently without power. This storm is now reported to be the size of Europe!

This photograph was taken from the GOES-13 satellite.
