75. I don't think the Carolinas were the biggest areas of worry...
they've gone through bigger, more intense storms before.

It's the storm track on Irene that's taking it up through Maryland, Mass, NY and NJ that's making it a dangerous storm. A large, slow moving storm, creating a bigger than normal storm surge, moving directly at low-lying, heavily populated areas that aren't used to hurricanes, makes this a storm to watch.
