Irene is a Category 3 storm that could upgrade to Category 4 before making landfall in the United States this weekend. The governors of five states — New York, Virginia, New Jersey, Maryland and North Carolina — have declared states of emergency. If you live in one of these areas, stay tuned to local news for the latest.
