I thought it would cool to make a log of Hurricane Irene's impact on different areas.
So if you're in the path, please let us know where you are, how bad it was and how it has affected you, after you're safe, of course.

I'm in a suburb of Charleston, SC. We had a target on us at the beginning, but luckily, for us, it veered east. It was close enough that we got some of the rain bands, and some 30-50 mph wind gusts, but really not even as bad as some of the tropical storms I've seen. We got lucky, and I hope y'all stay safe and have minimal damage.

Irene hasn't really hit us yet. Although from what I've seen on the radar and heard, we're going to have one heck of a sh!t storm.

It hasn't really, except for the gloomy, overhead clouds and stillness in the air.

That's what we have now. I think we're going to get hit pretty hard.

I live in central Texas and am experiencing a serious drought. I'd love to be affected by Irene.

ITS not gonna affect the west coast or is it gonna?

Unless the west coast now borders the Atlantic ocean....

Anyway, the hurricane is pretty pathetic so far, from what I've seen. We did get a tornado warning, though, and we still have a tornado watch.

Been listening to the radio, the Jersey shore is getting wacked. Hope Danielle is okay. Just a lot of rain and wind here in Boston, so far.

Yeah, I'm watching the news right now. With all the hype for the hurricane, and what the news is saying, I'm starting to get kind of disappointed, as stupid as it sounds. The weather is apparently supposed to get bad again, but who knows. I didn't see any of the bad stuff we were supposed to get.

School just got closed due to power outages. I didn't have anything major. Our biggest problem was that a trellis fell down in the high winds. This seems to be the only thing that fell down in the entire neighborhood. Winds still here though, so who knows what else could happen.

I'm glad that it seems to have been less damaging than expected. This could have been much, much, worse for everyone.

Well, we got lucky. Philadelphia seems to have had the crap beat out of it. There are power outages all around us, but not us. There's relatively the same tale down at my grandparents shore house. Ventor didn't seem to get hit too hard according to what I heard. According to the news, though, Margate (right next to Ventor) got slammed. The difference seems to have been the fact that Vetnor had dunes put back on the beach, but Margate wanted the view instead so they don't have dunes.

Youre in a good spot my friend/ That city is probably the most envied place in the
South right now. You have Boeing and a lot of other worlwide industries that will cause this place to grow like a wildfire. By the way, I am only 100 miles away.
See ya later. LOL

You people out West are catching it bad. I bet you wished a tropical storm
would come your way.

The surrounding towns lost power; mine didn't. It was really annoying to prepare for this epic storm and have almost nothing happen, but I guess it's better to be safe than sorry. I'm also pissed my gym (and other stores and restaurants I like) have been closed for a few days, but hopefully everything will be up and running asap. I was lucky to not have been affected much, but I know some people who were. I thought these photos were pretty interesting: http://www.buzzfeed.com...

Almost nothing? Looking at the photos I would describe that as a major natural disaster.

Put it this way, if a storm like that hit Britain and did that sort of damage...I don't know how we'd react...the country comes to a virtual standstill every time there is an inch of snow on the ground.

1) Gas went up about 7 cents a gallon.
2) The news thinks it is the end of the world for the East Coast and by God, us west coasterners must know about it!
3) I end up watching less news.
