    (NECN) – Meteorologist Matt Noyes says it is possible that Hurricane Irene’s first landfall will be in New England. It is a major category 3 hurricane. Irene has a distinct eye that is continuing to strengthen.

    It will bring devastation to the Bahamas. To the East coast, it is expected to bring rain, wind and waves at minimum.

    If this plays out the way it is looking, Hurricane Irene will bring more impact to New England than any name storm has, at least since Bob in 1991.
