Tracking hurricane

Senior Hurricane Specialist Jack Beven tracks Hurricane Irene at the National Hurricane Center in Miami, Florida. Irene is on track to move over the Bahamas as a category 3 storm and from there cooler ocean temperatures are expected to lessen the wind speeds, but it could still be a major storm as it approaches the North Carolina coast.Getty Images
