    Hurricane Irene is re-emerging over Atlantic waters after battering the North Carolina coast Saturday.

    Currently a Category One storm with maximum sustained winds of 80 m.p.h., Irene is anticipated to remain a hurricane as it passes over the mid-Atlantic states and into New England.

    The system is expected to churn its way up the U.S. east coast and arrive in the NY-NJ-CT tri-state area late Saturday, where coastal evacuations and mass transit shutdowns are underway.

    As of 11 p.m. Saturday, Irene's U.S. death toll stood at eight people, including a boy who was killed when a tree fell on his apartment. Follow our US & World blog for the latest news updates as Hurricane Irene heads north.
