Hurricane Irene, a ferocious and slow-moving storm, battered North Carolina on Saturday morning, then slowly began its march up the Eastern Seaboard, flooding low-lying areas, knocking out power to as many as 1 million customers and forcing the densely populated regions of Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., and New York City to take unprecedented steps as they braced for impact. Irene is expected to continue its northward path through New England before weakening early Sunday morning. If you want a mobile tracker, then we have a couple of app suggestions for you. Online, The Weather Channel’s Hurricane Tracker maps out and predicts the hurricane’s path, as well as wind speed. Download the Weather Channel mobile app for Android or iPhone to view the maps on the go. Another, simplified view of the storm is the Hurricane Irene Tracking Map from The New York Times. The map, powered by Google, shows the path of the storm and its category (strength) upgrades as Irene moves along. You can also change to a pretty fascinating storm image map view.
