Watch Live Coverage Of Hurricane Irene From Space As International Space Station Does Flyover

The Virginia earthquake may have been memorable but it will have absolutely no impact on the economy. As for Hurricane Irene, that is another matter: if indeed it impacts the eastern seaboard as heavily as some expect, we would not want to be long insurance companies. For those who want an unorthodox perspective of the Hurricane, NASA will be conducting a flyover at 4:05 pm EDT/8:05 pm GMT, with the Space Station. The live stream can be seen here.
