Hurricane Irene
As the much-anticipated Hurricane Irene made its way up the Atlantic Coast, residents prepared their homes for the onslaught. Most closed up their businesses and many evacuated, leaving their property vulnerable not only to nature's fury but to the grabbing hands of those who thought the impending weather was the perfect cover for theft.
