A downpour from Hurricane Irene slows traffic in downtown Myrtle Beach, S.C., on Friday, Aug. 26, 2011. Irene has the potential to cause billions of dollars in damage all along a densely populated arc that includes Washington, Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York, Boston and beyond. At least 65 million people could be affected. (AP Photo/Bruce Smith)
