Saturation point

Somebody loan me a lifeboat, the weather reports aren’t sounding any more optimistic:

… Even if Irene loses some of its punch as works its way up the coast, moderate to major impacts — including flooding, downed trees and significant power outages — are still anticipated in the heart of the urban corridor from Philadelphia to Boston, especially near and east of I-95.

Much of the “urban corridor” is already saturated from unusually high August rainfall levels, so this is going to be interesting and probably unpleasant. Pay attention to those flood warnings.
