Hurricane "Irene" is coming to the east coast of the U.S., writes News. Ru.
He already suffered from the Dominican Republic and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. Without water and electricity were tens of thousands of homes.
Meteorologists warn: "Irene" is reinforced by the day. If he flew to the Dominican Republic at a speed of 155 kilometers per hour, to the American coast, he came up with the wind — up to 180 kilometers per hour.
On the eve of U.S. President Barack Obama held an emergency meeting with the operational departments. Rescue services in South Carolina and Georgia have been translated into an increased level of preparedness. It is assumed that "Irene" may be the biggest in the last seven years by a hurricane, which will affect the territory of these states.
