MIAMI (AP) - Forecasters say Irene, still barely a hurricane now with top sustained winds of 75-mph (120-kph) winds, has made landfall on the New Jersey coast.
The National Hurricane Center said the center of the huge storm lumbered ashore near Little Egg Inlet at 5:35 a.m.
Lumbering now, no longer barrelling.
Got a high school buddy who lives RIGHT THERE, in Egg Harbor, with a pair of German Shepherds. Hope they're all okay.
