WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Irene looks to have landfall around 7:30 am Saturday just west of Cape Lookout, NC. The storm was a category one at the time, with maximum sustained winds of around 85 mph. The storm will continue to pull away from our area through the night, and be replaced by a hot and humid Sunday with a mix of sun and few clouds with light winds!

No other weather threats to worry about now. Be safe, take care, and see you every Thursday and Friday on our evening newscasts from 5:00 through 6:30 pm with my special features, “Explore With George.”

DO feel you are overreacting if you are freaking out going to the store…if you have some canned goods in the pantry, fill your bath tubs up with water…YOU’LL BE FINE! Freaking out in a panic going to the grocery store with all the other NUTZ isn’t going to help.

Don’t you think it’s a little coincidental that there were no hurricanes this close while George was gone?

I wouldn’t want to go through a hurricane without you!
I don’t tell a hurricane story without a nod or two toward you. “…then George Elliot said…”

Statistics say we are due for a major storm. Get your stuff prepared today. Supplies will be gone on Thursday. Generators were flying off the racks this morning at lowes at 8am. They are well worth the piece of mind alone. A day or two without power is the pits. Also remember to fill your propane tanks for cooking on the grill.
