The US second largest gambling destination, Atlantic City, has been completely evacuated in anticipation for Hurricane Irene.
The storm had weakened to a Category 1 but was expected to bring high damaging winds and a strong storm surge. A storm of similar strength, Hurricane Belle, completely flooded neighboring Long Beach Island in 1976. That system tracked a little further out to sea than Irene’s current forecast track, which takes her right along the New Jersey coast.
