Hurricane Irene and Hurricanes Past

Hurricane Irene is heading up the east coast of the US with more force than we've seen in quite a while. Today's episode of CNN Student News covers the track of Irene. The segment also compares Irene to past hurricanes that have hit the coast of the US. The episode is embedded below.

For more resources about Hurricane Irene I recommend checking out the list of mapping resources that Google Maps Mania and the Google Earth Blog have assembled.

And of course, I wish safety and good thoughts to all of my friends and readers in the areas affected by Hurricane Irene.
