Senior hurricane specialist Richard Pasch of the National Hurricane Center said there were signs that the hurricane may have weakened slightly, but strong winds continued to extend 90 miles from its center.The moment Saturday when the eye of the hurricane crosses land "is not as important as just being in that big swath," Pasch said. "And unfortunately, it's a big target."The storm's center was about 85 miles south of Cape Lookout, Troy Aikman jerseys N.C., early Saturday as the storm lumbered north-northeastward at 13 mph. " RIM took it on the chin after its last earnings report, though its new BlackBerry 7 models, which have met with decent reviews, were too late to have an impact.

"By analyzing and Dallas Cowboy Womens Jerseys interpreting RIMM options that expire on June 16, 2012, we note that they are implying an approximate range for the stock of around $10-$25, by mid-June 2012," they added. "From one perspective, a case can be made that options are pricing in a 30-per-cent chance that the stock increases to $25 and a 40-per-cent chance that it decreases to $10." Whatever, they believe that $18, around the current range, is "not likely the right price for this company." Their 12-month price target on the stock is $26. Wind and rains knocked out power to about 45,000 customers along the coast, including a hospital in Morehead City. A woman who answered the phone there said the hospital was running on generators.Hurricane warnings were issued from North Carolina to New York, and watches were posted farther north, on the islands Patrick Crayton jerseys of Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard off Massachusetts. Evacuation orders covered at least 2.3 million people, including 1 million in New Jersey, 315,000 in Maryland, 300,000 in North Carolina, 200,000 in Virginia and 100,000 in Delaware."This is probably the largest number of people that have been threatened by a single hurricane in the United States," said Jay Baker, a geography professor at Florida State University. lintingting/blog201111
