Hurricane Irene

In a year of seemingly endless natural disasters, Hurricane Irene stalked the East Coast of the United States for more than a week in August. The good news was that most communities—particularly major cities—were well prepared for the storm. (New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie famously told citizens to “get the hell off the beach.”) But when it was over, despite protestations that the media overreacted, Hurricane Irene was the fifth-deadliest storm in the U.S. since 1980.
