A statistic about Irene that I am wondering about

With everything shut down and people hunkering down in their homes during the hurricane, how many babies do you think will be born 9 months from now along the east coast?

pretty much a bust by the time she hit Jersey.  Worst weather was between 4-8 hours before the eye arrived. My weather system recorded a high wind speed of 46 mph at about 1 AM and 5.8 in of rain over 24 hours.  Right now cloudy skies.

Hurricane Andrew was far worse.

A bust perhaps from the standpoint of whether it was a hurricane or not.  However, she resulted in a lot of damage in upstate NY.  Due to the already saturated ground, there's been quite a bit of flooding and uprooting of trees.  Three towns in the mountains were as I was told "wiped out" with 3 feet of water running through the streets, the supermarket, CVS, and video store "gone."  Several washed out bridges and many road collapses just around here.

There's always Bulgaria.
