Irene swell is up to Virginia Beach, but only 2 foot. You know by the 12 Second Period it is a groundswell from a distant storm. Irene is now Cat Three Lashing Acklins Island in The southeast Bahamas. There may be a window of non lethal surf for us Friday/Saturday, that is if you are not too busy Battening Down The Hatches. Or reporting for a News Station. Time to make a plan.
