Here’s the latest on Irene from the National Hurricane Center. This graphic is not showing the anticipated size of the storm, but rather its projected path in the coming days and what conditions could look like. The black dots with an “M” inside them mean “major hurricane.” “H” means simply “hurricane,” and “S” stands for “tropical storm.” New advisories should be available by 8 pm and 11 pm Eastern tonight. Here’s the 5 pm advisory. FEMA says East Coast residents should be getting prepared, and an emergency declaration was signed by Obama two days ago for Puerto Rico.
