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.

Time Ticking in New Jersey as Christie Does not yet Take Action on Internet Gambling Bill

Governor Chris Christie has until that time to veto or sign off on a bill that could bring a much needed $28 million – if not more – to his state yearly.  It’s not just the millions of dollars, it’s the many new jobs that will ultimately be created.
