SIA Newsletter 8 23 11 - Start Planning Precautions for Hurricane Irene!

To all Strathmere and Whale Beach Homeowners and Visitors,

We don't want to alarm anyone unnecessarily, but Hurricane Irene is now forecasted to strike our area on Sunday afternoon!
The forecast track has been constantly changing, more and more to the east, so hopefully this trend will continue and Irene will pass us well offshore.
On the other hand, it's well to be prepared so you should start doing some planning in case the worst occurs.

Here is a CNN article advising people on the East coast to take preparations,

and here is the forecast track as of this afternoon, showing the storm "kissing" (violently) North Carolina on Saturday and getting here on Sunday:

We suggest you follow this storm very carefully and begin thinking about precautions to secure your property, including boats, etc.
Thanks to all for your continuing support!
