After the earthquake of 5.9 intensities that happen just recently, the east coast is now preparing for the storm Irene. My husband told me it might arrive on Saturday so for sure, the electricity will be cut out and we will never be able to chat. Storm Irene is expected to be strong so those residents who lived near at the sea, are asked to evacuate. My husband will be staying inside the house for the whole day and could not go out because it is dangerous. The wind will be blowing away and the rain pours really hard. I have not experienced typhoon or storms since mountains surround our place but mind you, we always get flood when it rains hard.
