Tropical Storm Irene with 65-mph winds made landfall in New York City at 9 a.m. EDT Sunday.
Hurricane Irene made landfall Sunday around Little Egg Inlet, New Jersey, around 5:35 a.m. EDT as a minimal category 1 hurricane, with winds near 75 miles per hour.
Hurricane Irene made its first landfall near Cape Lookout, North Carolina, just before 8 a.m. EDT Saturday as an 85 mile per hour, category 1 hurricane.
The heaviest rains have shifted into eastern New York and New England while strong wind gusts continue for D.C. and Maryland northward. Flash flooding and river flooding is widespread. The center of now Tropical Storm Irene with 60-mph winds will track from along the New York and New England border to western Maine by early Monday and then exit the U.S. into eastern Canada. Irene will steadily weaken and then turn post-tropical.
Strong wind gusts and wet ground will continue to bring down trees into power lines and possibly buildings. Extensive power outages will continue to develop and power may be off in some areas for an extended period.

Rest at,
