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.

I am glad we have both George and Jerry here during this time of the year.. I have been plotting the storm and I see a west shift everytime the models are run. IE at 72 hrs (8-24) the NHC had it at 33.2N and 76.2W. now as of 11AM (48 hrs) it’s 33.3N and 77.1W.

Wilmington getting really close with this ..
34.2N and 77.7W

everyone has to keep watching very carefully. All the hipe from weather channel is New England, but people of Wilmington really have to pay attention to this one.

Question: With regards to listening to wway on the radio, is this still possible? If so, is it AM or FM and what is the frequency? Or, is the only option the NOAA issued “weather radios”?

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.
