High above the Earth from aboard the International

The National Hurricane Center noted on Aug. 22 that 

Irene is expected to produce total rainfall accumu-
lations of 5 to 10 inches across Puerto Rico, The Virgin 
Islands, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, the South-
eastern Bahamas and The Turks and Caicos Islands. 
Isolated maximum amounts of rainfall may reach 
up to 20 inches.
