    Went right through the eye. no power outage or house flooding or nothing. Damage to my house is $0. I live in chesapeak, virginia for you wondering.

    It was supposed to be 'catastrophic' here in Boston....all we got were a few power outages, and some trees down.

    Personally, I think they overhype it so you keep your eyes glued to the weather channels, to keep ratings up.

    i dont think so, they want people to be safe, rather be safe then sorry right.

    and the storm was catastrophic in virginia, and North Carolina, and in New york. a boy that was 11 years old died by a tree coming through his apartment and his mom was right across from him when it happened. so the storm was bad, and for all the people who say it wasnt your wrong.

    go tell the 26 passed away people that they are babies or they overeact

    Or they were at the wrong place at the wrong time. they chose to stay at their house. They said evacuate. Plus i was in the middle of the hurricane next to a lake. my house is fine. I think they said that just to keep the hype up. or it is a rumor. Do you see them helping the bodies out on the news. no!

    Yeah, that's it.

    People complain that it was hyped up to be such a big storm. The hell? Better safe than sorry. Then if you guys didn't get prior warning, and it was bad, you would all be complaining about that.

    As a hurricane enthusiast, I don't see the reason for the complaints for "overhype". Even if Irene were to come ashore as a weak tropical storm rather than a weak Category 2, it wouldn't have been "overhyped". Ultimately, it's better to be over-prepared and have it do nothing than to be under-prepared and have it flatten all houses within 30 miles of the center of the storm.

    Furthermore, a Category 1 storm is nothing to be trifled with. It has sustained wind speeds of 75 mph (65 kt), with gusts up to 95 mph (85 kt). That's a lot of wind. Combine that with the torrential rain (Irene actually caused some 100-year floods in the Northeast), and a Category 1 is still a force of nature.

    So i would like to know (seeing I don't live in the USA) without reading 12 pages of thread just how strong it was and when the impacts were? Was it completely hyped up like our friend Yasi, should it have been hyped up?

    The paper this morning says the death toll is up to 40 now. The sad thing is, it's in a small article at the bottom of the front page. Obviously the midwest was going to be unaffected by the hurricane but in no way do I see the Wisconsin recall elections to be appropriately dominating our front pages (still) when a section of our country just went through another natural disaster. Off to the interweb for more details.
