Atlantic City Ghost Town as Hurricane Irene Approaches

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.

This weekend is typically among the busiest for Atlantic City.

Atlantic City Braces for Hurricane Irene as Models Shift West

Hurricane models began shifting the track of dangerous Hurricane Irene west on Thursday morning as the storm makes a beeline towards the gambling Mecca of Atlantic City.

Irene is forecast to still be a category 2 storm by the time it brushes the East Coast resort city during the early morning hours of Sunday.  While landfall could occur along the North Carolina Outer Banks, current forecast models have the storm running parallel along the East Coast of the United States during what is typically one of the busiest travel periods leading up to the Labor Day weekend.

Court Won’t Return Seized Domain Names: Says No Hardship Caused

A federal judge has refused to return the domain name of a Spanish company accused of violating copyright law.

Earlier this year US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) seized the domain name Rojadirecta.org owned by Spanish firm Puerto 80 along with several other Web addresses.  Puerto 80 was the only defendant to file a petition in the court, claiming the action was seriously damaging its business.

The judge disagreed, claiming the seizure has caused no significant hardship.
