A sign on the boarded up windows of a home near the beach reads "More Beer" and includes both a skull & crossbones and a hurricane symbol, as Hurricane Irene approaches, in Asbury Park, N.J., August 27, 2011. Hurricane Irene charged up the U.S. East Coast on Saturday towards New York, shutting down the city, and millions of Americans sought shelter from a huge storm that halted transport and caused massive power blackouts.
