Mark’s Video Blogs

Viginia Beach, VA

**Tell me, why o why are those idiots out driving around in Virginia Beach, VA?

TWC’s Eric Fisher positioned at Virginia Beach, VA has been talking about how winds are much stronger and more destructive the closer he is to buildings where winds are whipping around the structures.

New York City

**I continue to be concerned about tall inner city buildings which may see 100+ mph winds which more than likely will punch out windows. With New York City likely to be closest to the eye of Irene, we may see 100-120 mph gusts at the top end of the Empire State Building and other tall, exposed skyscrapers. Pieces of glass and other objects may become airborne and fly through streets below.
