Hurricane Irene

Hurricane Irene is a North Atlantic tropical cyclone that inflicted extensive damage on Caribbean nations before making landfall in North Carolina, on the East Coast of the United States. The ninth named storm, the first hurricane and the first major hurricane of the 2011 season, Irene formed from a well-defined Atlantic tropical wave that showed signs of organization east of the Lesser Antilles. It developed atmospheric convection and a closed cyclonic circulation center, prompting the National Hurricane Center to initiate public advisories on the tropical cyclone late on August 20. Subsequent convective organization occurred as it passed the Leeward Islands, and by August 21, it moved very close to Saint Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands. The next day Irene made landfall at hurricane strength near Puerto Rico, where high winds and intermittent torrents caused significant property damage.
After crossing the Turks and Caicos Islands, the hurricane quickly strengthened into a Category 3 major hurricane while passing through The Bahamas, leaving behind a trail of extensive structural damage in its wake. Curving toward the north, Irene skirted past Florida with its outer bands producing tropical-storm-force winds. It made landfall over Eastern North Carolina's Outer Banks on the morning of August 27 and moved along southeastern Virginia affecting the Hampton Roads region.[1] Hurricane Irene made a second U.S. landfall at Little Egg Inlet in New Jersey on August 28, becoming the first hurricane to make landfall in the state in more than one hundred years.[2] Irene was downgraded to a tropical storm as it made its third U.S. landfall in the Coney Island area of Brooklyn, New York, at approximately 9:00 a.m on August 28.
Throughout its path, Irene caused widespread destruction and at least eleven deaths; monetary losses to the Caribbean could be as high as US$3.1 billion according to preliminary estimates.
