There are several posts this morning. Please be sure to read the analysis of President Brodhead's message Monday afternoon to the faculty on Duke's international ambitions.
✔✔✔✔ Weather update 9 AM Tuesday:
Hurricane Irene shows signs of growing into a Category 4 storm, the 2nd most powerful, and slamming into North Carolina this weekend with force not felt in years. Just in time for upperclass move-in!!
The storm now seems far less likely to landfall in northern Florida, as had been forecast, with Cape Fear, NC now seen as far more likely.
Category 4 means means winds of up to 155 miles an hour that would be "catastrophic."
The storm could hit inland areas (that is Durham) as a Category 3, with winds of 115 miles an hour that are considered "devastating."
At least it should help ease if not end the drought.
