Hurricane Irene arrives

While the center of Hurricane Irene is in New Jersey, Plum Island is experiencing gusty winds up to 35mph and pounding surf. Little rain falls but the arrival has just begun. This slow moving storm is expected to remain in the area well into tonight and possibly Monday morning.

So far, no breach of the center beach or flooding of the Plum Island Turnpike. Let’s hope it stays that way. More later.
