Hurricane Irene became the first hurricane of the 2011 Atlantic hurricane season early Monday morning as it moved offshore of Puerto Rico.
Hurricane Irene is now forecast to become stronger over the next 5 days, since its center is expected to track over less land in the Caribbean, tracking toward Florida and the Southeast U.S. Thursday into the weekend.
Irene has already produced widespread tree and power line damage across Puerto Rico.
The hurricane center has increased the threat along Florida and southeast United States coast to HIGH. This threat level will likely change as forecast confidence increases both in the track and intensity. Other areas of the U.S. – perhaps farther north along the East Coast
