NBC reporter Peter Alexander attempts to broadcast from the windswept Coney Island boardwalk in New York as Hurricane Irene became intensified Sunday, Aug. 28 2011 in Coney Island section of New York. Barely a hurricane but massive and packed with rain, Irene lumbered onto the New Jersey shore Sunday morning on its way toward pummeling New York, which turned eerily quiet as the city hunkered down.
