Irene remains on track to slam into the Carolinas as a major hurricane this weekend, posing a severe threat to lives and property.
Given the setup in the atmosphere as well as where hurricanes have traveled from similar starting points, negotiating the Antilles, Irene may take a path somewhat similar to Hurricane Bertha in 1996.
The difference between Bertha and Irene is that Bertha was a Category 2 hurricane at landfall. Irene should come onshore as a strong Category 3 hurricane.
