Re: we were hit by Irene

Irene made landfall Saturday morning at Cape Lookout, N.C., as a Category 1 hurricane, then moved into the mid-Atlantic before being downgraded to a tropical storm and hitting the Northeast on Sunday, killing at least 15 people in its path. Many of the victims were killed by falling trees.
However, the sandbags remained relatively dry Sunday morning as residents and store owners expressed relief that Irene had spared them.
